A Little Gift
My sister knows me so well. She sent all of this in a little package for me. OK, I like jelly beans...and the little tin with the puzzle is nice, and who doesn't love old clothes pins....but the FORK! On purpose, we do not have a *set* of forks. Our silverware does not match. I like it best that way. I love to just buy ONE knife here and there....a spoon once in a while....and have forks given to me as gifts. It's fun to get into the drawer and decide which knife, fork or spoon I want to use for toast.....cereal.....soup....or a salad. When somebody sets the table, somebody will probably be right behind them moving the mix and match plates around to get the one THEY want....and more often than not...somebody says something about the fork they have. I won't use the bamboo fork and we know which one Sara would take home with her if she could. I have a little knife with a bunny on it that I have to keep a close eye on. If you ever come to eat a meal with us....nothing will match, but it won't be an accident. It's all very well thought out.
