Name that plastic



Just curious if anyone can identify my "hat" and "picture frame." If I've already told you, please don't ruin my fun :)

Awww shoot!!! And here I thought you were getting highlights.

I have no clue what it is/was - - - looks kinda like a plastic pillow with a hole in the middle.

Keetha said...

Maybe the plastic wrap which surrounds new sheets - - -

Keetha said...

How about a plastic cover that was over your new/repaired laptop?

Keetha said...

Whatever it is, did it get that hole cause you accidentally put it on a hot stove burner?

Is it a food storage container that was sacrificed to the dishwasher gods? (I'm assuming that even though the dishwasher is in a Wesleyan home that it is not, in fact, Wesleyan.)

Keetha and Amy are getting close... it had to do with a food something and heat. My MOM did it to MY item. Any more guesses?

The highlights comment is fun :)

Keetha said...

You're enjoying keeping us in suspense, aren't you!?!

Amy said...

Perhaps your mother, in all her wisdom, left it on the stove top and turned on the burner. (No offense, Joan!)

It looks like a clear plastic cake pan lid to me, with an obvious problem.

Why do I know what happened? Where have I seen these pictures? I thought you already posted this. I am NOT going crazy! But, how do I know?????

Well, Kim, it's up for debate as to whether you are losing your mind or not, but I did show you these pictures on Mom's camera and told you the story. BTW Your baby will absorb all of your brain cells until delivery, and then he/she will drink them through the breast milk! That's why my children are so smart and I've lost every brain cell I ever thought I had.

Jenn is the big winner! I brought chocolate chip cookie bars to my parents' house in a jelly roll pan with a plastic lid. I left it on the counter. Later the next weekend, Mom was preheating the oven and something smelled AWFUL! She didn't smell it. I thought maybe there were chemicals in the oven or something, and then she remembered that my empty pan and lid were in the oven! Why might an empty pan be in the oven? To get it out of the way of the cleaning lady.
So, she pulled it out and it stretched out like warm taffy, but quickly cooled. The weird thing is that it didn't stick to the pan at all. My lid is destroyed but the pan is fine. Bummer. I wanted an excuse to buy a stoneware bar pan.
