The Roo-girl: Oooh. A cake!
Carpool Girl: Yes, it's my friend's birthday today, and I'm bringing her a cake for lunch. I wonder if a plastic knife will cut this?
TRG: They have plastic knives in the cafeteria.
CPG: Oh, right! They do. *laughs* Or I could use a spork.
TRG: *shudders* Sporks! I hate sporks.
TRG: They always had sporks with hot lunch in elementary school. Now I associate sporks with bad food.
Evil Mother here. OK, so, my child hates sporks. (Sorry, Tink!)
TRG: Hmmm, what if you combined a spoon and a knife? You could call that a spife ...
A spife? Nah. But guess what?
I don't make this stuff up. I swear!
