I was scraping the dinner dishes clean and I accidentally scraped a fork into the garbage.
The garbage was full of slimy, sloppy, smelly globs of yuck.
I considered if I really needed that particular fork…
It did match all the other forks…
And, if I didn’t retrieve it then I’d be forever, one fork short.
This decision took me quite some time; the garbage that day was particularly disgusting, so I was really struggling. ‘Fork it, or not?’
Then, I remembered I also have long stainless steel BBQ tongs!
The fork rejoiced! And, my set remained complete – after a sterilizing shower through the dishwasher 🙂
