Week Twenty-Six: Lost

It's okay, everyone, we found it, we found this week's topic. It's Lost, thank goodness we found it. Of course, everyone knows that losing your keys or wallet can be very frustrating. And getting lost on the road causes us to be late or gets us anxious. It's an awful feeling to lose control of the situation, but exciting when we lose our first tooth.

Found at left is a pleasant etching of Saint Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of lost items. Absent from this etching are the words Saint Anthony was heard to remark upon striking this famous pose; "Somebody lose a kid?" Shortly thereafter, Anthony took the child to the information desk next to the food court where the careless parents were paged over the intercom. Sure, he just wandered off while you were looking at the picture-on-a-mug kiosk.

Hope your find yourself here next Tuesday.
