A person's clothes might be hidden. If you can't find them, you don't go anywhere around because there are things that need to be covered like the penis or women's ribs or something on your shoulder. There can be a lot of things hidden. Covers hide the feet and the boobs but the head sticks out.
Your heart might be hidden. You feel sorry for them. When your heart is hidden, it stops people from ripping it out and helps them live a longer life.
Teeth are hidden in your mouth but when they come out, someone will take them and give them to someone who really needs them.
Hiding is a way to stop people from hurting you. Hiding from things you were always involved in. I wouldn't want anyone to find my hiding place. I hide my feelings from my kids if I do wrong. Everybody gets that.
I hid some money and when I came home from school it was gone. I asked my mom and she said she'd try to find it but never did.
Mom's hide Christmas gifts but the kids never find them. So when the mom takes out the gifts, they get good things. My mom did the same thing for Hanukkah.
