Sattie, you and I must have the same gremlins. I just noticed yesterday that I'm missing about 3 forks and couple of spoons.

You don't have any teenagers that do your dishes, do you? When my oldest was a teen, I noticed things going missing, especially flatware. Turns out that on her night to do dishes, she hated washing stuff that had dried on food - particularly forks. She solved that problem by hiding the troublesome items in the back of a little used corner cabinet!

LOL!!! I have no children, only DH and he does the dishes most of the time. So I can only assume it's the elves!

There's a boy in this house, so the odds of him actually using flatware or a plate, are slim to none. my personal theory is that the people who make saran wrap are sneaking into our houses and stealing the lids in the middle of the night.

My wife has witnessed me flinging plastic containers all over the kitchen before.
This is a personal bugaboo of mine!

So now, if I can't find a lid, the offending tub goes into the Pending corner, and if the
lid doesn't appear next wash... into the recycle bin goes the tub!

We got one of those stack and spin container sets a few years back when they were
popular, and I have been a happy man since then, LOL!

(I vote for House Elves being naughty, myself. Leave them a stray sock and get
rid of them I say! LOL)

I live alone. I know I have elves in my house.

Not only do they take my socks and my bowl lids, they move my eyeglasses around.

hehe The "not me" reminded me of this:

One morning I came out of the bathroom after my shower to see the Trivial Pursuit game scattered all over the living room floor ... every card was out of the box and every little slice of every pie.

I didn't say a word to my son, who was about three at the time, but gave him one of those Mom looks. He cocks his head at me and said, "Did you see me do it?".

Pretty hard to be mad when it takes everything you have not to crack up laughing. Was also pretty hard to explain that since there were just two of us there and I knew that I wasn't involved, it pretty much left him. haha He still tries that same phrase when he's trying to feign innocence.
