Be Careful What You Wish For

Weeks later, I get a surprise in my auction lot box: a giant spoon and fork.

How can a giant set of utensils surprise someone? Let me count the ways…

#1 by being at the very bottom of the box;

#2 by not being made of wood (they’re plaster with faux wood grain painting).

You’d that this would only further thrill this lover of kitsch, but…

In this case 1 + 2 = the previously repaired (glued) pieces were damaged too much to actually hang on the wall. And heaven knows I can’t afford any horizontal space to store them on.
