The case of the missing tomatoes!

The other day I took a tomato from the bowl to make a sandwich. I found that some tomatoes were missing. Since I had bought a kilo of tomatoes only the previous day, it was easy to see that some were gone. Theres only one little thief in our house. Usually, it is onions and potatoes as they are in the lower shelf. Tomatoes and Bananas are in the top shelf. The thief cannot reach the top shelf or so I thought! The enquiry started. "Ashu! where are the tomatoes?" She gives me an innocent look and runs to the hall. I follow her and see a tomato under the sofa. When I go and pick it up, the thief runs to the kitchen. I follow her and Voila! the secret place is found. Behind the fridge! I retrieved almost half a kilo of tomatoes from there. I guess she was doing it for the past week or so taking one or two at a time and stashing it there! No wonder I was buying tomatoes very often! Wonder what she was planning to cook! Its not even my birthday or something... ;)

lol. Good job she led you to the places where she'd hidden them rather than you having to follow the smell of it a few weeks later :)

She is such a fun child to be with! :)
My amma is always asking for things to my 3 year old nephew and he brings them! Not just that he steals and hides some of them, but he has noted all the things and positions in his investigative hours, and remembers exactly what is where, which nobody in the house remembers sometimes! He works as our private detective! :) ...
