I can’t fly, nor read minds. I can’t render myself invisible nor do I have extraordinary strength. I do, however; have a unique superpower.
I can find all the lost things.
If something is un-find-able, come to me. It can be a specific tool (menfolk territory), a book, or article of clothing that was never put away properly. Most recently, it was the title to the car my daughter drives. Technically, it still belongs to us, but we are going to sign it over to her when we renew all our vehicle registrations.
Mister has been looking for it, unsuccessfully, for some time. I’m not sure on the specifics, but I can easily say it’s been more than weeks, more like several months.
I thought I knew exactly where it is, but was merely misdirected. The title I found was to my son’s car.
The next place I looked was unproductive, as was the second. Third time was the charm.
Time lapse – less than five minutes.
I need a cape and a cool superhero name.
Still, my cellphone and keys are my kryptonite, I practically lose them on a daily basis.

The week’s word is:
What to do:
Using “lost” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

I’m pretty good at finding things, as long as I’m not the one who’s lost them lol.
