Scissor Gnomes. They have been a plague upon me since I was a child. Put the scissors (or box knife) down while working. Use another tool for a few minutes… Finish. Reach for the scissors… They aren’t where I put them. Look everywhere in the vicinity. Find them not. Yell and scream at the Scissor Gnomes, tell them this is Not Funny. Walk out of room. Return. Scissors are back where I first put them down. Scissor Gnomes: Total jerks.
