In celebration of the Spoons of our life–ubiquitous but often unrecognized–Blue Towel Productions is proud to present the Daily Spoon, which we were are celebrating this September, the Month of the Spoon. #MonthoftheSpoon
You know, I had a great post in mind for tonight, but then I almost forgot to do it. Time is short, and an airport run is at hand, and by the time I’m back it’ll be tomorrow, so this is a quick one.
This is an ordinary brown, wooden, unmarked kitchen spoon that looks like its seen better days. It sits in our cupboard along with all other utensils, but it rarely gets used.
That’s because usually I pick the other wooden spoon you see here, as featured on Day 1 of the Daily Spoon.
Still, this spoon with its completely straight handle and sort of random scoop size and shape does get used from time to time, and so we keep it, as a good back up. I don’t really do baking, but maybe I’d more likely use it over my favorite one if I were stirring a cake mix or something.
Truth be told, it’s not very deep–so it’s barely a spoon as opposed to just a stick.
So it serves its purpose. All good spoons serve a purpose. Or all spoons that serve a purpose are good.
Or any spoon can become good, if we give it purpose. Maybe that’s more the idea.
Join us tomorrow for more of The Daily Spoon here on Blue Towel Productions’ The Month of the Spoon. We will be setting our cultural sights a bit higher this time–examining a spoon-perspective all the way from Europe!
