Badi By Moonlight

One of the bad things that can happen around the house is if Badi, Katie's blankie, is nowhere to be found come bedtime. And a bad thing happened. We looked upstairs. No Badi. We looked downstairs. No Badi.

I looked in the garage. I looked in the van. Still no Badi.

I looked in the front yard. No Badi, but I did get to turn off the hose that Katie had turned on earlier in the day.

I wanted to go look in the back yard. But Katie had wandered downstairs to help look for Badi and nothing I could say was going to get her to go back and look upstairs again. So I finally bit the bullet, headed out the back door, and closed it behind me, hoping that Katie wouldn't manage to follow.

She didn't. So I looked in the empty deck box that Katie likes to hide in. It was very empty.

I put all the things that were supposed to be back in the deck box back in the deck box. *sigh*

Ok, Badi has got to be somewhere. And the Moon is nearly full tonight.

As I walked down the yard, I saw a suspiciously irregular gray shape shining on top of the enormous transformer box that Katie likes to climb up on. I headed over, picked up Badi, slightly damp with dew, and brought it back in to Katie.

And Katie -- after two Curious George stories -- is now happily in bed.

With Badi.
