Why Utensils Are Important
Well, this was a "group" party...where half of the alphabet brings a dessert, the other half brings a salad and everyone chips in for pizza and soda. There are tables full of homemade and store bought foods in plastic or aluminum containers. Everyone knows to let the little kids go first, but really everyone is just as hungry as the little kids. In front me is a big man. They give him one slice of pizza..he looks at that one skinny slice like, are you kidding me? Then he heads off to those tables, still in front of me. He reached first for a spinach salad. There was only one metal fork in the salad and it was awkward getting the salad out. He spilled the salad on the table and the dressing got all over, he picked it all up with his hands and put it on his paper plate. Next he went for the fruit salad..and there wasn't any utensils in it. I gave him my plastic fork and told him he could use that. He was happy with my help. Next he eyed the mango salsa, and then looked at me. I shook my head no and said, "finger food only." We didn't even know each other...he laughed and said ok. We both went for the cookies.
