Strangely enough, as I was digging through my Tupperware cupboard (You know you have one!), I realized I have FAR more lids than I do containers. Sifting through the tops of various shapes and sizes, I can clearly recall the corresponding bowl, yet it no longer exists.
What could cause this phenomenon? Sure, the microwave is a likely suspect, as it can turn your once precious storage container into a blog of unidentifable plastic; same as the dishwasher. However, this can’t BEGIN to account for the severe unbalanced nature of my cupboard. No joke; I probably have twice as many lids as I do vessels.
So I’ve decided there is a Tupperware Troll who, much like your average homeless person with a shopping cart, rifles through your collection and takes what he finds good and interesting. But only one half or the other; never the entire piece.
And here’s a little known fact: his best friend is the goblin living in your dryer that eats your sock.
It would explain a WHOLE lot!
