Well, I just received confirmation that the magenta spork arrived and was greeted well, Doug puts it best "When Ian unwrapped his spork this evening, he started convulsing so hysterically that he actually fell over. Then he took it from the massive box, and wielded it with pure, unadulterated joy. He brightly exclaimed, "It's perfect! This is the BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!" And when we went out to dinner after he unwrapped the gift, he kept bringing it up in conversation. When I delicately warned him that--next year--we might not be able to make an equally extravagant wish come true, he reassured me, "Don't worry. I won't ask you for a GIANT CEREAL BOWL." "
Glad that it worked out. I know I am getting as much mileage as I can from it. It will also be my Halloween costume this year. You can call me "The Spork!"
