Where, oh where has my flatware gone?
After 27 years of marriage we are down to 5 teaspoons, 12 soup spoons, 6 salad forks, 13 forks, and 15 knives - and that's combining three different sets of flatware. How has this happened? Where did the utensils go? And why have most of them disappeared in the past 11 months - right after the 30-year-old moved back in with us? I don't think he is responsible for their disappearance, but it is an odd coincidence.
Right after Christmas, after fruitlessly hunting through three drawers and the dishwasher for a fork, Steve said to me, "We have to do something about this silverware situation."
I saw that Oneida is having a good sale - up to 75% off some flatware sets - so I ordered two sets of Bristol. That will be 24 place settings. Maybe we can make them last another 27 years... .
