Covers and Seals

I know someone who used to run Tupperwear parties, and she was always correcting me on my incorrect use of the word ‘lid’ – apparently Tupperwear don’t actually DO lids, they do either covers or seals. Apparently a cover… well, covers the vessel in question and a seal… um, actually seals the stuff in… But in my book both covers and seals are still types of lids, so there we go… πŸ™‚
