Recycle and Re-Use your Superfluous Spoon Collection

November 26, 2004

I just can’t do it. I can’t give away my superfluous spoon collection and my small liquid container collection. I know the rules for our Jewish-Occitanian (SinterKlaas) holiday require us to give presents that we have culled from our closets, recycled and re-used, but I just can’t part with these beauties. No one else could possibly get as much joy from this collection as I do. Would anyone else carry a rainbow of plastic icecream spoons around with them for 6 months hoping to brighten an adhoc picnic?

Certainly considering the developing food-related projects that I am working on, owning these objects is justifiable.

Once I shared my spork with a friend and upon completing his icecream he threw his spork away! How could anyone confuse a spork with trash?

  1. I don’t want you to collect MORE superfluous things, but AlItalia prides herself with plastic cutlery designed in the 70s by Joe Colombo. Hopefully this carrier will stick to such nostalgia, in spite of the heavy financial weather she’s in…
