In my attempt to be frugal, in spite of the plastic purchases, I found plastic silverware that was very cheap. I purchased only one box of the utensils - I figured - "plastic silverware can always be washed."
The effects of the fork, while stabbing at the hot chicken were similar to the special effects on the movie The Wizard of Oz. In fact, we thought we could hear the fork cackling, "Help, I'm melting..." as we tried in vain to capture the hot piece of meat onto the eating utensil.
We gave in, found the taped up box marked "everyday silverware" and got out the real thing.
