I bet he was actually thinking of the fruit bowl. And what he was thinking, was that he tricked you by taking it after he got home at a time you weren't looking.
M: *sigh* "a packet of M&Ms...the candy bowl"
He smiles satisfactorily. "Close, I was thinking about the Twix bars in the candy bowl."
That isn't a valid hypothesis at all. She had clearly observed the fruit bowl many times throughout the day. Therefore she was consciously aware of it's existence and it's presence would have been determined absolutely by her status as an observer. To state it would suddenly disappear once it had been determined to exist is absurd.
Might I suggest you experienced something which can be explained by quantum physics? You experienced Schrodinger's Cat (google it if you've never heard of it). For a moment the fruit bowl was both there and not there, until you became consciously aware that it was not there (the role of the observer in physics, see: the Copenhagen Interpretation), after which the fruit bowl's position in time and space had been measured so it disappeared.

Yesterday was the STRANGEST day. I was with my friend and her children all day, it felt like the day would never end. We sat and talked..talked...talked some more... she finally said "Does it feel like time stopped to you?" I said "Yeah...actually..." she goes "Today is SO ODD" and she isn't the type to notice such things.
I also found myself "reading" her childs wants, she came up to me and before she opened her mouth I said "No sweetie I don't have any chips". Very very strange.

You may find this interesting:
Also, Australia didn't have a tip on it (more of a flatter top) and Tasmania was located to the southwest of Australia, not the South East.
Fun times indeed!
Simple answer: Crap Map!
Perhaps someone sold a "cheap" map to schools in England, Canada & US. No-one noticed because "they were so far away & didn't matter".
Even Captain Cook's maps got it right (in 1770)!
