Who knows where my dessert forks went?

We originally bought 12. Now, after emptying the dishwasher, with none waiting to go in, and none in the drainboard, I can find three.

  • At my house, the forks would probably have ended up in the sandbox or under the kids' bunk beds.

  • My guess is in the garbage. People scrape their food off into the garbage with the fork and it falls in. Or they put it in a dish of leftovers in the fridge and then the leftovers get dumped along with the utensil. I've lost many utensils over the years.

    Remember the nursery rhyme about the dish running away with the spoon? There might be something to that. And the odd socks too. But that's a different story for a different day.

  • They're probably chilling with my spoons in a landfill now.

    That's my theory on what happened to the 5 spoons that are now MIA.

  • Well, they're not under DD's bed. But I'm not overjoyed about the stuff she has been hoarding under there.
