The Law of the Spoons




Henceforth I shall set down the law of the spoons.

Spoons are governed not by man or God, but by some ethereal metaphysical force.

So nameth I this force – Spoon Matter.

Thou hast laid 12 spoons on thine kitchen drawer.

Within 72 hours only 7 spoons layeth in thine drawer.

Three spoons layeth not in the dishwasher, the sink or in the dusty corners of the house.

The spoons hath disappeared like ships into the mist.

Wherefore art thou spoons?

Days turn to weeks and the spoons in thine drawer dwindle to 4.

In this desert thou returns to the oasis of spoons and bargain for 8 new spoons.

Thou layeth the new spoons in thou drawer.

Within 24 hours thou spoons hath spawned and thou hast more spoons then thou hast ever stirred.

Whenceforth did they come?

It matters not, for they are passing fancies merely meant to lure thou into a false sense of complacency.

Within the passing of 14 days thou shalt have one singular spoon with which to stir.

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.
