I’d say I am definitely a steak knife. Nothing makes me happier than making that first cut through a big juicy filet mignon cooked just a little under medium rare. It’s also a good tool for cutting through all of life’s bullshit…metaphorically speaking.

I am a matching set of large, durable, bourgeois salad fork and spoon,
carved of some sweet-smelling, exotic yet sustainable wood (like mango),
and fond of "mixing things up."
Sometimes my fork-like qualities come to the fore:
stabbing commentary, criticism, ingratitudereminiscent of Lear's line:
"how sharper than a serpent's tooth is an ungrateful child."
Sometimes my spoon-like qualities are in evidence:
the capacity to empathize, nurture,… Continue

I think I am a fork. My hair is forever a mess and prickly like a fork. My head is relatively huge compared to the rest of my body, (no joke). And even though I am pretty useful at ending slippery slopes (like a fork is to pasta) I have an edge.

the spork embraces its between-ness, defies easy categorization, and finds strength in its humble beginnings. the spork stands as a reminder that sometimes our cognitive categories are just not rich enough - or flexible. in short, the spork serves up some pretty yummy food for thought.

Unlike a knife with its sharp blade or a fork with its pointy tines, a spoon probably has the least capacity of the three to harm others. A spoon works perfectly for soft ice cream or soothing soup ... I function well when life is smooth and easy. A spoon is all but useless for cutting a tough piece of meat ... I am rendered immobile when times are difficult and stressful.

I am a gravy ladle because I am laying it on thick. I add the calories that you always forget to count. I am the enabler of the sopping up of everything heavy that lands on your plate. I am a gravy ladle.

I started as a butter knife, but there were things that needed to be taken apart, so I applied myself as a screwdriver,
and a pry bar, and I got the broken whatsit open.
And I can still play butter knife - 'till something else needs repair.
Oh, and I can usually get most of those screws back in the right place too.
And sometimes the whatsit gets fixed.
In any case, it's better than just being smeared with butter all day.

I've never been able to classify myself as any one thing. Shuffling between IT, creative writing, management and back seems to be more a dichotomy than can be classified simply "fork, knife or spoon"...
...or perhaps not. Stretching the paradigm slightly - perhaps I could identify with a Knife. Specifically this Victorinox Swiss Army knife
. It still has it's fundamental "knife-ness", but is extremely versatile and flexible to accomplish lots of… Continue

I aspire to be a serving spoon. A serving spoon can be used to serve, as its name would suggest, but it can also be used for other purposes if needed. In other words, while it does have a special purpose, it is adaptable to many other needs. It has the potential to be the most well rounded (pardon the pun) of all the utensils. If I were stranded on a desert island and I could have only one utensil, I would want a serving spoon. Its bowl is large so it can hold lots of water or food, but it… Continue

It's a good mixer. It's tough but if it's used long enough and hard enough, it breaks.

I'm a dinner fork. For me, until my last breath, life is simple a streaming buffet table of experiences and sensations and emotions and adventures and knowledge. I eclectically endeavor to try and dabble and tast and listen and see and feel and...LIVE. I'm a fork piling my plate to overflow with every single unique sentient hors d'oeurve that ensures a life fully engaged and enriched.

I like the image of the teaspoon for myself. its ordinary, everyday, one of those utensils you grab for lots of uses that have nothing to do with tea--actually I'm not sure what its really supposed to be used for.
Spoons exist in potential, as empty spaces. They take in substance gently and in a kind of fellowship.

I used to be a serving spoon, helping out, always the little mother in my black patent leather party shoes taking care of my younger sibs. Now, I'm dishing out heaping scoops of chocolate chip ice cream or dipping into warm chocolate pudding, living in the moment. It's a balancing act, helping out yet, also savoring a dollop of fresh creme brulee on my own tongue. I'm loving every spoonful, whatever life dishes out.

I am chopsticks...there are two of me.
something to do with my sun signs, I think...
always two sides to everything...
one side does not function well without the other.
you really need to pay attention or you will go hungry...
I am process oriented. is there a pun in there?
I don't do anything quickly...I enjoy my time in the process...
I feel no need to rush through my meal...
through the process...through my life.
it is work for me to use… Continue
