Oh hai there!

If, based on the title quote, you’re reading this hoping it’ll be about the cult ‘romantic drama’ The Room, where fans pay homage to its awfulness by throwing around plastic cutlery, you’ll be sorely disappointed. There will be no spoon chucking in my posts!

There are literally millions of these containers around the globe, often hidden in the most public of places (high Muggle locations!) and can range in size from thimble to trunk.
