Forknelious

I have had several emails wondering about fork....and if I have lost my mind. Well, maybe not so much the mind part cause that went MONTHS ago but why I am doing what I am doing.

Ya see, I am messing with babygator's head. ~grins~

None of us really remember fork"s genealogy. Seems like fork has always just been. We can remember fork being around since babygator was 11 or 12. She thinks that there is also a spoon and knife but I have my doubts. Fork lives at my mom's home and has always been babygator's favorite fork. It has no match in the drawer or the entire house. My best guess is that fork was purchased at a garage sale. Fork is sterling and is very heavy.

Yes, you heard me correctly, her favorite fork. It is kind had to understand that someone has a favorite fork isn't it? I guess not so much if you really know babygator.

You see, babygator has a had time detaching from certain things all of her life. In her mind, things must be a certain way or the world tilts. That is her order....her stability. This is my child that can jump up at a moment's notice and move a whole household. OR jump on the back of a motorcycle and go to a rally. This is also the child that when she was tiny refused to get in a car that I had bought because it was not the old white VW rabbit that she was accustomed to riding in. The child that STILL proclaims it does not feel that her grandparent's living room because they removed the wall of photos and changed it up. They took the photos down over 10 years ago!

But she calls dibs on a fork before she ever gets to her grandmother's house. My mom has offered to let babygator take fork home but that won't do for bg...fork is supposed to be at her grandmother's home.

So...I took I took fork for *a little ride*. LOL

Fork traveled all over Dallas with the blogger group. We had such a good time getting photos of fork. At first I was a bit shy in asking strangers to pose with fork but that went out the window quickly. People were more than happy to pose with fork. It would start out with *I stole my daughter's favorite fork and I am taking pictures with it all over Dallas and...* people would take fork and saying *Cool how does my hair look?* and get a big ole grin all over their face. People are looking to smile. Fork has been many many places and I have only ran into 2 people that did not get *fork*. One kept asking *How old is your daughter?*. The other threatened to destroy fork...for reals. Fork has had a death threat. One that has not been taken lightly.

So, until yesterday, I was in possession of fork. Yesterday, for has been set free. ~laffs wickedly~ Fork has decided to go on the run and see the world while he is at it!

And yes fork is a boy. He has dangly bits. ~grins~

Fork got dropped off in the mail friday and should be arriving at his first destination today! I could not let this information out before because I knew babygator might stage a raid at my house and get fork back. Instead fork gets to GO PLACES!!

Do you want fork to show up at your place? If so, leave a comment and you will be on the list! I will just need a pic of form from where ever you are!! Cannot wait to get all the pics in! And a fork is surprisingly cheap to mail!

........who is an AWFUL mom having a HOOT with fork!

  1. You have my address, I believe, but if not, I will re send by email. I think the fork needs to see the Alamo or take a walk on the Covenant labyrinth.

  7. You KNOW all the cool places I can take him to here!! I think a balloon ride... or maybe the guards with the big guns at Los Alamos would like to meet him!! As long as they don't think he's a weapon and I am making threats against National Security... that could turn out badly for Fork...

    Hey Mindy Sue Loo ~ I can keep fork for you. We have a spare bed and bath for fork. An empty closet for fork to hang gooey dessert and such, too! Oh, fork can read all day long in the reading room. I think fork could stay here for some time and never get bored! Fork could even dig in the dirt and play with flowers! Fork vacation starts here!!! :O)

    Fork wants to come see the World of Coke, eat at the Varisty, and if he gets here by June 13th, I'll take him to see Princess Diana's wedding dress. OR... to a baseball game. Does Fork have any preaching experience? There is a day I need someone to preach for me...

  22. I saw what looks like an alligator on the picture Rach posted of fork. I think the fork needs to come to Louisiana to fork up some kinforks. Ask him if he knows Alfonse Fontenfork...

  23. Is Fork busy next weekend? If not I have a friend who is going to the Indy 500. It would be an awesome place for Fork to visit, don't you think?
    If Fork is busy, then he can come to my house and ride in the BIG tractor and help Farmer plant corn and soybeans. Fork can sleep in Miss M's pink bed too!!
    We would love to host Fork anytime!
