|“||I was unchaperoned because S. Theodora Markson decided to leave one Thursday morning to visit her sister, who lived in a charming cottage out in the country with a beautiful garden and a darling teacup collection and no little boy underfoot to muck up everything and ruin their fun. That was me.||”|
Little is known about Theodora's sister; it is stated that she lives in a cottage in the country, with a garden and teacup collection, and no small children.
S. Theodora visits her for the weekend while she's supposed to be chaperoning Lemony Snicket, and promises him a teacup if he behaves. Lemony seems to believe this implies Theodora will steal a teacup. When she returns, she does indeed give him a teacup that he remarks has an ugly pattern.
