The other night I was cleaning up from dinner. I reached into our tupperware cabinet and pulled out a with (to my suprise) the lid on it! WooHoo how could I be so lucky?! It's usually a very frustrating search on hands and knees my upperbody completely engulfed by the cabinet to find the correct lid for the box I need. (We could be the infomercial for those generic tupperware organizers. LOL!)

Anyway I put the tupperware on the counter and turned back to the food to prepare it for storage. I removed the lid of the tupperware and guess what I found..... YEP a letterbox!!! It was one I had carve and was waiting to plant, that mysteriously went missing! Of course I fell over from laughing SO hard. Everyone came running to see just what was so funny. When I told them they all gigled and rolled there eyes and said "WOW! You need Letterboxers Anonymous!"

What had happened is I had bought a bunch of CHEAP tupperware for letterboxes and after realizing the seal wouldn't be as water tight as I had hoped I just threw them into the abyss of our tupperware cabinet.

Guess I should have checked all the boxes before... but then I would have this funny story LOL!

I've heard of boxes being found before they're planted (don't know what the point is there)...

I've even heard of boxes being found before the clues were posted...

But THIS...

... HAS to be a RECORD... a letterbox that went missing BEFORE it was planted!

That is hilarious. And, it reminds me of a time. . .

My mom had a bunch of ring and necklace boxes (she's a HSN, QVC aholic). We were going to sell the empty boxes at a flea market, my husband the very smart man, decided to check the boxes first. He found, not one, but two of the boxes still had their 14 karat gold jewelry. What if he hadn't looked and we had sold those boxes for 25 cents?

I have to get my mom into a 12 step program for sure!
