plastic lid gnome?

So I know I have posted like 32 (ok only 2 this is 3) times today but I really need to compose a letter to the unknown individual...or group?...who steals all my lids for my plastic storage containers. I made a gigantic batch of pea soup today and went to put it in the containers to store in the freezer and alas no lids so here it goes...

Dear Lid Stealer,

I know plastic lids are a thing of beauty... my husband is after all a plastic engineer and our livelyhood depends on plastic... but why do you have to steal my lids? I know you come and take them because why would I have all these containers and no lids? It makes no sense. Now we may be forced to eat pea soup for days and we all know what happens when you eat too much pea soup. Please don't subject our family to that smelly future and return them.

Thank you kindly,
Kim

Oh no! In college a gnome was stealing everyone's bras from the dryer. Then one day we went outside and there were bras hanging from every sign, tree, bush you could see. So maybe this is a sign that there is very exciting "plastic lid day" in your future.

p.s. we should become tupperware ladies & throw big campy parties wearing beehives.
