Spoon rest

by Jeff Grossman » Sat Dec 21, 2019 2:55 pm

I had a white porcelain spoon rest on the stove. I moved it aside during the busy run-up to Thanksgiving. I haven't seen it since. Anybody have any idea what I did with it? :shock:

If it migrates to my stove, I'll be sure to let you know.

It’s in a black sock I’ve been looking for and it may be in the back of the fridge.

Did my wife visit your home? She constantly moves things, which I may find months or years later--if at all. E.g., where is my bag of almond flour?

Santa has misplaced a present, too. I looked in the pantry for your almond flour and in the dryer for Barb's sock, no spoon rest in either place.

Gremlins?

Things that disappear seem to go into an alternate dimension sometimes, only to reappear in an obvious place later. The serendipity principle strikes again.

We use an antique spoon rest that She-who-must-be-obeyed is under strict instruction not to machine wash. (not sure why the first image doesn't download, but if I click on it it appears. Not sure why the other one is upside down - wasn't when it left my harddrive. Damn computers!)

That is a lovely object!

The funny thing about The Case of the Missing Spoon Rest is that my kitchen is the size of a matchbox. Even setting Reason aside it is only barely possible for anything to remain concealed for long.

Douglas Adams had a theory that all lost pens, spoon rests, and whatnot slip through wormholes in space and end up on another planet.

Terry Pratchett had a reverse take on this theme. He said that the Big Bang Theory is wrong and the Steady-State Theory is correct. But the newly-created matter isn't subatomic particles as the physicists assumed. Instead, the newly matter appears in the form of that egg whisk that you find jamming your cutlery drawer, and that you don't remember ever buying.

Bill, your file size was too large. I copied it to my own computer and reduced the size to 400 pixels, and here it is just fine.

I once lost a serving tray, which was at least 18x 12 inches in dimension, in our modest motor home.
Several years later I found it had got down behind the back of the drawers. The on,y way it could have got there was that I had left it on the pull out shelf when I pushed it away. But how it contorted itself to get down the back defeats me.
