Back in May, I hit the jackpot. I found two sets of matching silverware for $5.00/each (normal price $40/each). They were the nicest sets of silverware we have ever owned. Fast forward to present day, 5 months later. I took inventory of what is left of my lovely silverware:
Dinner Knives: 7
Dinner Forks: 6
Salad Forks: 6
Soup Spoons: 6
All of the above had an original count of 8. Where did they they all go?
I’ve come up with the following theories:
1.) Swiper from Dora the Explorer jumped out of my son’s TV screen and decided that my silverware was his target for the day. I’m just waiting to catch the episode and make a positive ID on my spoons. “Swiper, no swiping!”
2.) They fell deep into the cavernous pit that is the spot in the couch between the cushions and the back of the couch. I haven’t looked in there recently…that is a scary…scary place to go.
3.) My son is starting early with “borrowing” things getting ready for living on his own. Yes, he’s only 4 but sometimes I wonder. He seemed very excited and said, “Oooh, look how nice” when I first put the silverware in our shopping cart.
Anyone else have any other theories?
