The randomness of family life

There is much to enjoy in family life, and one thing is the randomness it produces.

Point in case: About a month ago, I pulled a cereal box out of the cupboard for breakfast, and it turned out to be empty and had a ballpoint pen in it. I put the pen away, put the box in recycling, and continued with my morning forage.

Last week it happened again. Another empty cereal box with a pen in it.

I have several choices here:
* Let everyone know that we now have a rule that we can't leave pens in empty cereal boxes
* Ask Cathy and the boys if they know anything about it

But I think that I'll just treat it as a mystery and wonder periodically if it will happen again. Ah, randomness.
