I caught him doing it again. Can you believe it? Yes, using the fork handle to spread butter on his toast. Oh, I’m going to figure this out. I have to. I am tired of the butter in the nooks and crannies of the design on the fork handles. I always get a surprise when I pick the fork up out of the sink, yes, by the handle, to wash it. Yuck!
I am baffled. We have butter knives. Maybe a subtle hint is needed to remind him about the proper tool. I can fix that.
Off to the Goodwill I go. I get 10 very cool butter knives, wash them up and dry them, put them in the utensil drawer, and wait. Wait and wait. Finally, I see just what I was hoping for. My husband searching through the knives in the utensil drawer, looking for just the right butter knife, yes, butter knife.
