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.

    The spork is the greatest invention EVER. Also, the Snorks is the greatest cartoon about underwater creatures EVER.

    SPORK! That’s the thing about karma… you tease your kid about sporks, and they getcha for it.
