So I have this little, minor, insignificant, reoccurring problem with this little dish …
I don’t own this dish but it never fails to show up at my house when I invite the relatives over for the holidays. I don’t have a problem with it showing up at my house, but I do have a problem with it STAYING at my house until I remember to return it to it’s owner.
I won’t mention the name of the owner of this dish. And I do want to mention that anytime this dish comes into my house, it contains something yummy. I think. She brought this over, filled with something for our Thanksgiving meal. This time, I’ve no clue what she had in it. All I know is that it’s now here, sitting empty on my counter, waiting for me to return it.
But see, she always, ALWAYS leaves it here. I always ALWAYS, try to get everyone to take their dishes home with them when they bring food over for the holiday meals. I wash them up and made sure that all empty dishes are placed in their hands as they walk out the door to head for their homes. This way, I don’t have to look at it sitting on my countertop until I remember to deliver it/return it to them.
This little dish always finds a way to remain here.
So each and every time, I wash it and sit it at the back of my counter … like this…..
And here it remains until I remember to put in in my car and take it over to
It’s really a cute little dish. Each time I look at it sitting there, taking up precious counter space, I’m tempted to put it up in my cupboard and pretend that it’s mine. But then, every time I use it, I’ll remember that it’s not mine.
So now, in my mind, I’m scheduling in a delivery date.
Friday, I will be in the town where her office is located. Hopefully, I’ll remember to put it in the car with me when I leave.
Until then though, I’m so weary of always seeing it sitting here empty, so darn it, I’m going to use it.
Well, it’s a bit too small to use to hold my tomatoes …..
I always have a pack of gum and some tic tacs sitting on my counter so maybe this could be nice holder for them … nah…..
Peanuts fit nicely in it! Maybe. But this reminds me to ask my daughter about her son’s peanut eating ability because yesterday when the grandson was here, I saw him help himself to a peanut. I gave him a napkin to put the shells on, but later when I looked … there were no empty shells in sight which leads me to believe that perhaps he ate the shells????
Ok, I’m not going to let the peanuts sit out in a dish until I know for sure that he is not eating the shells.
hahah…. looking about for something else that I can put in the dish, I found this ….
Those fancy hors d'oeuvres toothpicks have also been sitting at the back of my counter … for a couple years. LOL …. I just realized that this is something else
She’s getting these back, dust included, when I return the dish.
Do you think that after she reads this, she’ll feel shame for always forgetting this dish which forces me to always try to remember to deliver it back to her???
Whoops, I’m not going to mention any names nor am I going to give the un-named person any ideas.
Maybe this Christmas I’ll see this dish back in my house filled with the un-named person’s famous cheeseball! (hint, hint)
Happy Day everyone!
