Denial Is A Fibber Egregious

Remember back a month ago, when The Pony and Farmer H went to Oklahoma for The Pony's OU registration? When The Pony drove his Rogue? I sent snacks for them in the cooler Farmer H packed with bottled water (but forgot the Diet Mountain Dews that I bought for him at Save A Lot).

Yes. Snacks. I packed some of those little crunchy breadstick/cheese packets. And peanut butter cheese crackers. And a Chinese Tupperware container of green grapes and stemmed cherries that fit perfectly in the cooler.

This is what it looked like when I got it back:


Oh, I don't mind that they ate most of the fruit that I had cram-packed in that container. What I mind is that they damaged my Chinese Tupperware. Look at it! See there? One of those corners is not like the other. It looks like they dropped it.

What I mind most is that neither one of them knows anything about it. Nope. Nobody dropped it. What am I talking about? Corner? What's wrong with it? Oh. That one? Looks like it got chipped. No. I don't know how. Maybe it was like that when you packed it.

Sweet Gummi Mary!

I can't get Chinese Tupperware like that anymore. And the #1 son has kept about five sets of them. Though he, too, denies it. Probably just threw them away!

This is why Mrs. Hillbilly Mom can't have not-even nice things.

I think Brook and Amy sell those containers in their "home goods" section. Although I'm not sure, since I don't have nice things. I have dog-haired covered things. I have mismatched things. I have second- (or third- or fourth- or fifth-) hand things.

But I ain't got no nice things...

Sounds like you have some "Not me's" living at your house!!

Sioux,
Do you need any roughly-used Chinese Tupperware?

***
fishducky,
Yes. And the BIG not-me is going to have to get more creative with his excuses when the LITTLE not-me goes off to college.

Just take comfort in the fact that the container was free. If you come to the Chinese Restaurant here you will get more containers ....

Kathy,
That would be kind of a long drive for free Chinese Tupperware. Around here, all you get now are those Styrofoam containers. Which my mom used to save anyway, to send food home with us.
