"Kid has an IQ of 500 but can't get out of a Porta-Potty!" Memorable words from a former soccer coach of Thing One's. Bless the kid, he is smart as hell but a serious space cadet.
I was reminded of that this morning. Normally, feeding the dog is Thing One's job, but I came downstairs before him today and she was hungry. I had to open a new bag of dog food and couldn't find the measuring cups we always keep in her food bag anywhere. Finally, it occurred to me to go out to the trash can in the garage and look inside the old, empty bag of food. Sure enough: there were the measuring cups. *facepalm*
