Passover slight of hand

A part of any Seder is the search for the afikomen, a broken piece of matzah wrapped in a cloth. There is an interesting piece about the afikomen here, although I do not know how accurate it is. Anyway, during the Seder, I got up to hide the afikomen and, during dessert, the Girl Child and the Boy Child got up in search of it so they could redeem it for a reward. They returned with nothing; they couldn't find it. They asked for a hint. I said, did you try the dining room? The Girl Child looked at me, thought for a moment, turned to her brother and said: "Boy Child, you go check the sun room!"

Guess who found the afikomen?

I declined to allow my dad to give her more money than her brother received. I sort of felt like she wasn't playing fair. Although I was secretly pretty amused by her sleight of hand.

RP, there's a comical ad on TV where three office employees are seriously puzzled over how to ship a package to an international destination. After humming, and hahhing, they conclude that the only way to find a solution is to "break into groups". I laughed when I read your post. Wondered if girl child saw the commercial and likewise thought the solution to finding the afikomen might be to 'break into groups'. :)

Wow...reading this brought back so many memories. I'd watch my Uncle Izzy like a hawk, but I never caught him in the act of hiding. It'd just be gone and he'd say, "Find it.
