Is this "thing", then, something like "a box of chocolates"? only in that it consisted of different things but it was not a box of chocolates

Are other meats than chicken involved? If so, are these meats normally eaten by people? are vegetables involved?

Does this involve some dish with chicken as one of its constituents? a casserole? a curry? Are these "loosely involved" vegetables edible?

Is it important to find out what exact type of chicken it was? This is going to be difficult for me, I'm vegetarian :)
Wings? Pop-corn?
Is there anything in the open container except for the chicken?

Is it a dish (with chicken)? does the same dish exist in a vegetarian form?
Are the "old bits" of chicken boiled? fried? grilled? relevant?

Was the dish put together for human consumption? Animal?
Was it a pre-packaged meal (a TV Dinner or dieter's entree sort of thing)?

Now I'm confused; there are too many things floating around here.

So we have a "there", an open container?
And a "thing" that was in the container. That was the fried chicken bits with vegetables somehow loosely involved, right?

Was the chicken also the thing that she didn't expect to find in the container? Or was there a second "something" in the chicken? in the container with the chicken? that she didn't expect to find there?

Was the container a bucket? a bowl? a pan? a pot? a vase? a wastebasket? a plate? a cup? a basin? a tureen? Is exactly what the type of container is even relevant?

Sorry for delay in reply! :)

Now I'm confused; there are too many things floating around here.

So we have a "there", an open container? no
And a "thing" that was in the container. That was the fried chicken bits with vegetables somehow loosely involved, right? there was only a thing which was discovered in the open container. This thing consisted of the fried chicken bits and the vegetables and...

Was the chicken also the thing that she didn't expect to find in the container? she expected to find something in the open container but not the chicken, vegetables and... was there a second "something" in the chicken? no, nothing was in the chicken itself in the container with the chicken? {yes and..}that she didn't expect to find there? yes

Was the container a bucket? a bowl? a pan? a pot? a vase? this one a wastebasket? a plate? a cup? a basin? a tureen? Is exactly what the type of container is even relevant? not very relevant

So there's a vase, and there's Lucy, and there's bits-of-chicken-and-vegtables-and-something-else in the vase. Lucy expected to find something in the vase, but not the BOC&VASE that she did find there? Relevant what she expected to find?

Are any other people relevant to the situation? If so, how many? (insert LTPF List Of Positive Integers here) adult/child/male/female for each, please?

Lucy expected to find something in the vase, yesish but not the BOC&VASE that she did find there? indeed Relevant what she expected to find? yesish, if she hadn't expected to find this then she probably wouldn't have found what she actually found.

Are any other people relevant to the situation? yes If so, how many? {b{one adult male}(insert LTPF List Of Positive Integers here) adult/child/male/female for each, please?

Had the unexpected chicken-and-stuff got into the vase by accident? Had some one placed it there deliberately?

Was Lucy looking for something to eat? Was she looking for some flowers?

Is it relevant where the vase was when she found the chicken-and-stuff in it?

Would it help to find out more about what the chicken-and-stuff is?
