My silver went missing after a guest joked about stealing it

Dear Amy: About a month ago my husband and I invited two other couples, who are friends of ours, over for dinner.

I had the table laid out nicely with our best china and sterling silver flatware. During dinner one of our companions asked if the flatware was sterling. I replied that it was.

She said, “Well, don’t be surprised if one of your forks goes missing!” To which I said, “You can try, but I count them after each use!”

Well, guess what! After a thorough search of my house, I realized one of my forks had gone missing!

Now how do I handle this?

Forking Upset

Dear Upset: Your friend’s comment seems to have manifested an unfortunate coincidence.

Your choices now are:

To accuse your friend of (possibly) taking your fork.

To launch a podcast detailing the crime and your investigation.

Or to go to any number of online sources (replacement services or auction sites) and order a replacement fork to match your pattern.

There is some likelihood that the minute you get the shipping notification, your other fork will turn up. Then you’ll have an extra!

Dear Amy: I recently found out details of my wife’s family secrets – that her grandfather committed horrible sexual abuse against his own children. He was never prosecuted (or even accused).

This happened back in the ’30s and ’40s when no one spoke of such things. In fact, everyone acts like nothing ever happened. They only speak vaguely about him.

I’m not sure how much my wife or her siblings actually know about this. I found out through conversations with a distant cousin.

I’ve tried to bring it up with my wife, but she shut me down and does not want to discuss anything.

Her parents are both deceased, but according to the cousin, they were not willing to discuss anything with her, either.

It’s very complicated, devastating and sad for me.

My heart aches for her siblings and the way they grew up (the father was alcoholic, and the mother very manipulative and emotionally distant).
