Speak Your Mind: It’s Always the Last Place You Look
As any fan of Doctor Who probably knows, there are many, many episodes from the reign of the first and second Doctor that have disappeared. Not disappeared, exactly. The BBC got rid of the reels, and they were lost to history. At least, that’s what we thought, until 106 Doctor Who episodes were unearthed in Ethiopia.
Oh sure. Ethiopia. It seems so obvious now. Why didn’t they look there first?
I’m an incredibly disorganized person. I’m surprised I can get myself ready and out the door on time in the morning. I’m always losing the electric bill, my car insurance card, my taxes. Maybe I should start looking for these things in seemingly random places. Like my sock drawer. Or the inside of my shoe. In the Blu-Ray case for season one of Sherlock. Maybe we should start looking for other long-lost treasures in not-so-obvious places, as well.
What long lost treasure should we be looking for, and where? The Ark of the Covenant in your great-aunt’s attic? Is Peking Man just waiting to be discovered in the White House Rose Garden? Are those lost fabergé eggs in the dairy aisle at the local Kroger?
