BREAKING:

I have just discovered that the lid to my toilet tank is missing. As in, not on the toilet, and nowhere obvious to be found around the house.

It was there when I left the house...

Um.

More as the story develops.

I would just like to make it clear at the outset that while I would be proud to be even partly responsible for this, it is not of my doing.

It's in my neighbor's yard. He turned it upside down thinking it was a birdbath.

This is absolutely bizarre. Who would take a toilet lid?

In the Portland heat, someone obviously desired a tank top.

Even though I know full well that he's been nowhere near Portland for the past month or so, I'm just going to go right ahead and blame csinman.

Wow, you have ambitious gremlins.

If they are like our gremlins, they are just doing it to get your attention and will return it after you have acknowledged their existence.
