Every morning we found crumbs on our kitchen floor.
We thought we had mice.
Until BigBrother visited us and solved the mystery.
Son2 was an Oreoholic.
Left to his own devices he would eat an entire package in one sitting.
So, being the good parents we were, we hid them on the tippy top shelf of the kitchen cabinet.
Our kitchen had a vaulted ceiling and the cabinets were almost to the ceiling. The point here is they were TALL cabinets and the top shelf was way the hell up there!
When BigBrother came to visit he slept on the couch which had a direct view at the counter and cabinet where said Oreos were kept.
On the first morning of his visit he regaled us with this story.
It was around dawn and as he was half dozing on the couch this is what he saw;
A small shadowy figure came silently down the hall and into the kitchen.
Quietly slid a chair over to the counter, climbed up the chair, onto the counter, and using the shelves of the cabinet like a ladder CLIMBED UP TO REACH THE OREOS!
Took the package, climbed down and sat on the counter enjoying a pre-dawn snack.
He then climbed back up the shelves returning the Oreos to their original position, climbed down, closed the cabinet, returned the chair to its rightful place and even thought to BRUSH THE CRUMBS OFF THE COUNTER!
We’re talking a four year old here!
As BigBrother amused us with this story we all looked at Son2 and wondered out loud “Who could it be?”
