    Hello again!

    Suppose you have placed a thing in its usual place. After a few minutes you look at the same place and find to your horror that the thing is gone. You think to yourself: where has the thing gone? It must have disappeared. It must have developed legs.

    Thank you.

    The sentence was made up by me.

    It must have sprouted/grown legs (and walked away).

    It must have grown legs, more like it?

    PS. Beaten by ribran :) Who also happens to be twice as exhaustive. :D

    Thank you all very much. You did help me.

    I find "It must have sprouted/grown legs" both useful and funny.
