One of the things I love about Lauren is the fact that she tries and ususally succeeds to think like I would in certain situations. The most common situtaion she goes into "dizzying intellect" mode is when she is looking for something that she knows I just used.
She'll call me at work.
Bill: This is Bill Can I help you?
Lauren: Hi. It's me. Do you know where the Phillips head screwdriver is?
Bill: I just used it last night to change the batteries in Maxfiled's truck.
Lauren: I know.
Bill: Is it in the toolb...
Lauren: Not it is not in the tool box that is why I am calling you.
Bill: Is it in on the shelf as you walk into...
Lauren:..the garage. No I checked.
Bill: How about be....
Lauren: Behind it? Already Checked.
Bill: On the shelf thingy next to the...
Lauren: Airconditioner? Nope. Not there.
Bill: Did you look on the drys...
Lauren: The Drysink. Yes. Not the left drawer though because you wouldn't put it in the left drawer.
Bill: The mantle
Lauren: I checked.
Bill: On top of the refridgerator.
Bill: The cabinet where the coffee mugs are.
Lauren: Why would you put it in there?
Bill: Because, when I finished with the batteries I probably went to get something...
Lauren: ..to drink, and you figured you would just leave the screwdriver there.
Lauren: That was the first place I checked. It is not there.
Bill: Oh. Well, then I can't tell you where I put it.
Lauren: That is why you should just put it back where it belongs in the tool box.
Bill: But I love the way you think like I do trying to figure out where I would leave it.
Lauren: But I don't like to think like you ...Oh wait a minute. Hold on.
Lauren: I found it.
Lauren: In your closet.
Bill: My closet?
Lauren: Yeah. You probably put the screwdriver in your pocket and when you went to get changed for bed you emptied your pockets and instead of putting the screwdriver back in the toolbox like you should have at that time, you just put in on the shelf in your closet. I knew I would figure it out.
