Did You Miss Me?
This evening I was putting aside my lunch for tomorrow- baked macaroni and cheese leftovers. Instead of washing off a spoon just to make it immediately dirty again I used the fork with which I ate my dinner. I barely got through the cold macaroni before the plastic handle flew off the fork flying into my face. (I'm okay.) Mike, alarmed, asked me what was wrong. As I flung the pieces into the trash can (and missing) I flew into the doorway to the living room and proclaimed I JUST WANT REAL SILVERWARE- WE HAVE NO FORKS. (That's not even true.) Mike burst into laughter and I couldn't help but laugh as well. How ridiculous. We only have four forks left and two of them are mystery forks that Mike brought home from school. Someone is missing a fork from their legitimate silverware set and we have an ad hoc melange of cutlery. In what kind of world do we live? An unacceptable world. That's what kind.
