You know the one: the place that your other socks, spare pens, and guitar plectrums vanish to... and never return.

I've mislaid my measuring tape and it's really bugging me. Where do all these bloody items go??

So, question: have you lost items that eventually turned up somewhere odd, and if so where?

Also, why does it frequently happen that as soon as tell someone you're looking for something, you find it? (hence me starting this post... No one in my real life could understand the gravity of losing a measuring tape )
