A spoon is made for a very simple task: scooping. It’s good for soup, and ice cream, and cereal. And, let’s face it… forks are not. Forks have prongs, and are specialized tools for poking into things. You can kind of scoop things with a fork (such as peas or corn), but not as well as with a spoon.
In preparation for April leaving for New Orleans for a week and a half, we spent a lot of time together and, subsequently, did very little cleaning. Or dishes.
Moreover, despite what April tells me, yogurt cannot be effectively eaten with a fork. I think I would have gotten less of it on me if I’d just tried to drink it out of the tiny cup it comes in.
