“Um, girls, why do you have so many sporks from school?”
“I-a-oh (the grunting version of I don’t know).”
Then I tried to figure out what moral lesson was meant to be taught here…I couldn’t think of one.
“You know some kids only have spoons at school and some kids only have forks, but your father and I are sending you to a dual-use utensil school…(blank stares)…but when you bring home 10 sporks that means 9 kids are going without a spork today.”(*)
“No their not, there are lots more up by the napkins.”
(*)If your child was affected by the spork shortage please accept my appologies on behalf of my daughters. Apparently they needed so many because the dinosaurs that were fighting with Batman and Spiderman use the sporks as scooters to fly around, and they have a lot of dinosaurs.
