Rachel sent some of her delicious cake along with us and one more great story before we left Kansas City. As she covered the cake with aluminum foil she presented us with a plain fork and said, “I’m including this shitball fork. Let me explain.”
Her dad, Dennis, is forever buying them a specfiic type of silverware. It is called, “coronation”. Very ornate. It irritates Dennis when Gabe and Rachel mix in silverware that is not “coronation” at the table settings. He will hold up his fork study it, and say something like, “I dunno, what the hell–I can’t eat with this shitball fork.”
I give you, the shitball fork.
