Just one more piece. These are the famous last words of anyone hooked on a jigsaw puzzle. Okay, these aren’t the last words, these are just the words that cause them trouble. One more piece, then I will go to bed. One more piece then I will make dinner. One more piece and then I will… you get the idea.
It is funny how something so simple can cause so many problems. Maybe that is precisely it. It seems so simple, but that one moment of searching for a piece can turn into hours.
I remember once, a long time ago in a country far far away, I said to myself, just one more piece and then go to bed. The next time I looked at the clock several hours had gone by and my eyes were stinging. I guess that is just the way it is. I guess that is just what puzzles do.
