Paging Sherlock Holmes...

You know, Erma Bombeck (and Jerry Seinfeld, too, come to think of it) used to write about socks that disappear sometime during the wash cycle. Well, in my house, it's the teaspoons that vanish with no explanation. I currently have four different sets of silverware in my kitchen drawer. Those four sets comprise equal amounts of dinner forks, salad forks, and soup spoons. I have 14 steak knives and enough serving utensils to cater the Kennedy Family Reunion. Total teaspoons, however? Five. Let me repeat that. Five. How is that possible? Who's eating my teaspoons? Will my kids have trouble going thru the metal detector when we go to Hawaii next year? Or has my dog suddenly acquired a taste for stainless? Hmm...
