When I got married I registered for flatware. DP and I were in agreement on the pattern, so we chose this.
Though it was interesting/odd to me that people would actually buy one piece of the flatware as a gift, I was thrilled that once it was all said and done we had a full service for eight, including the iced tea spoons (a must if you are going to live in the South). I even bought an extra four spoons at the Oneida outlet.
In addition to the Louisiana, we also received another boxed set of flatware. It had four place settings + an extra eight spoons.
Now, I am not good at math, but I can do simple addition. I started out with 24, count them, 24 teaspoons.
Today as I was about to sit down to my bowl of Fruity Cheerios with vanilla soy milk, I almost had to eat with one of these, because I could not find one clean teaspoon . . . and that would never do, not at all!
So, I'm wondering, am I the only woman around who has disappearing items from her home? Where do the spoons go? Or the socks? Or the mittens? Or . . . You fill in the blank.
I'm going to look under JD's bed. Last time I checked under there, I found an empty jar of strawberry jam . . . and . . . you guessed it, one of my teaspoons.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
