Default where does it go

alright guys, where is the magical spot where stuff gets lost on this car. I was swapping plugs today and when I pulled the #3 plug, it fell out of the socket. I didnt hear or see it fall and now its MIA. I looked on the ground and behind tires incase it rolled. I looked and felt all over the crossmember, nothing. I though maybe it had fell down the manifold, but I can only see and feel so much on it. It that the magic area where spark plugs get lost?

I've never recovered anything that fell and didn't hit the ground. I have at least 3 items that are MIA.

Tried feeling, magnets, compressed air. Once an F body claims one your mistakes, it won't give it back.

Try looking around the K member. Lost a few sockets while putting on my headers a while back. Next oil change I saw a few hiding tools there. That is my only guess tho.
