Favorite Utensil?

La Petite Belle:  Daddy, what's your favorite utensil?

Beau:  Uhhhh ... a fork.

La Petite Belle:  Mommy?

Mama Belle: Ummm ... I don't really have a favorite utensil.

La Petite Belle:  Mine's a dipping spoon.

And there you have it ... a dipping spoon (whatever that may be ... it does sound awfully dainty and something you would use at an afternoon tea).

I think you're good as long as she wasn't talking about snuff...

I myself use a dipping spoon to dip marshmallow creme or peanut butter (or both) out of the jar.

I never knew there was such a thing as a dipping spoon :o)

I'm partial to spoons. They are more versatile than a knife or fork! a dipping spoon does sound dainty and feminine. La Petite Belle is channeling her inner charms!

I have a silver plated spoon that has a nice, round shape to it. We always use it for coffee. If it's dirty, I will wash it instead of using another spoon. I have no idea why, I just like it. :-)

Now there's a questions I've never heard...but I think I might use it sometime to through some randomness into the conversation.

I imagine the pinky MUST be raised to use a dipping spoon appropriately.

My Aunt wanted Sugar Snips for years. My mom bought her some and they turned out to be what people use to hold a horse by the nose so he will be still while shoeing. Who knew?
