Chickadee: Mama, a funny thing happened today. I opened my lunch and my spoon was snapped in two!
Me: Did you sit on your backpack today?
Chickadee: No. It was just broken.
Me: Well, I’m sorry about that. Were you able to eat your yogurt?
Chickadee: Yep, C. gave me her spork.
Me: SPORK! That’s a fun word to say. SPORK SPORK SPORK!
Chickadee: Mama. Stop it.
Monkey: What’s a spork?
Chickadee: It’s what comes with hot lunch.
Chickadee: It’s like a spoon, Monkey, but with—
Monkey: Oh! I know! It’s like a spoon with PRICKS!
Me: SP— *choking*

    I thought mine was the only school district cheap enough to use sporks! I don’t dare call the pointy things pricks — I teach science, including (gulp) sex ed.
