The Fork

I dislike forks.

And spoons.  Knives are okay, ice cream cones even better, but I really really dislike forks.

On the other hand, I love good-tasting food.  And in my personal opinion, forks taste like metal.  I would never consider metal an ingredient in any gourmet dish, yet somehow we've democratically approved sticking it into our mouths and calling it normal.  Isn't that the exact same thing we discipline children for?  No wait, somehow it's different because this particular metal has been molded into pointy spikes and holds food, right?

I call it weird.

So if you wonder why carne asada burritos, fish tacos, and sushi are so stinking delicious, don't blame it on the ingredients.  Instead let's give credit where credit is due: no forks.

Hmm...I think a fork is better than a spoon. A smaller metal to food ratio. I actually have been known to eat ice cream with a fork for this very reason. So why is it that I prefer to eat food with metal cutlery rather than plastic? Probably the bendiness of the plastic...or maybe my mouth is just used to the taste of metal? :)

I, too, can be found eating my ice cream with a fork. That is if no ice cream cone is available. =)

On the other hand, I will reach for my kids solid plastic forks to eat with rather than our metal ones. Somehow plastic is less contaminating nature than cold hard metal. Perhaps I should just perfect (read: learn) some crazy chopstick skills.
