A short story.

Once upon a time, there was a woman who lived with her one true love, and their two teenage children.  Each day she went to her job where she surfed the interenet and wrote blog posts worked diligently.  She was good at her job, and she was a good mother.  But little did her co-workers know, she had a secret power.  A power that few truly appreciated, but yet had saved her family on numerous occassions.

She always knew where everything was. 

It is true, you non-believers.  If her husband put down his keys, she could tell him where they were.  If her daughter was looking for her favourite pair of skinny jeans, she knew which laundry bin to look in.  When her son was searching for the mustard in the fridge, she could tell him that it was behind the yogurt, next to the leftover salad.  Her family did not understand how she could possibly be so wise.

Not only did she know where things were, but she also was able to memorize the personal schedules of all who resided in her house.  She knew when her son was out, what days her husband worked late, and when her daughter had musical rehearsals.  She knew how to schedule time surrounding their one bathroom.  And she did all this without breaking a sweat. 

But what would happened when she was not there?  Her family had come to rely on her super powers.  They counted on her to keep them on time and to find their crap.  A time would come when she would not be there, when she grew tired of there neediness was kidnapped by evildoers.  How would they survive? 

The answer is clear she must pass on her powers to them.  She must share her talents with her family so that they can share the good with the world.  But are they capable? Can they live up to these lofty expectations?  Stay tuned for the continuing saga of the family who could not take care of themselves…
