My clever plan to conceal my Mother's Day gift in my mother's keyboard tray went horribly awry.
I knew I had to act fast, because she was talking about going out and purchasing the book I left for her. So I asked her to check something for me.
Turns out she only needed the mouse. Never pulled the tray out.
So I, thinking frantically, suggested she go on Borders.com and look for a coupon. She tells me to do it. I pull out the tray.
Mother talks blithely, looking up, looking down, never once at the keyboard. "What do you want me to do?" says she.
And I reply, finally at my wit's end, "Will you LOOK at the left side of your keyboard?"
Yep, that finally did it.
