Mess with me and thou shalt wear pink

I have two very different children. It never ceases to amaze me that they are related. The youngest one, lives on this planet. You can trust him to remember pretty much anything. He doesn’t lose anything. The oldest one lives in a world of his own. He forgets everything and loses everything. This was not a problem until he started school. On his first day, he had uniform and equipment all labelled with his name. What could possibly go wrong? However, by half term, we seemed to be missing a jumper, a shirt, a pair of plimsolls, a P.E. Bag and a coat. We rummaged through lost property, but to no avail. I was furious, particularly as I watched my son walking down the road ahead on me dropping a scarf and gloves as he went. He was completely oblivious.
Numerous lectures later, I had lost the will to live. He needed to take care of what he had. Then I hatched a cunning plan. The next morning as we waited for the school door to open, I reminded Tom that he had to find all his stuff.
‘It’s not my fault,’ he countered ‘it looks like everyone elses’.’
‘Okay’ I said sympathetically. He looked relieved. ‘I will replace all of it.’ He looked suspicious. ‘But I will replace it all with pink items You have until the end of the day.’ A pale Tom entered the classroom. Needless to say he found all of it by the end of the day.
