Dutch Girl Dilemma...

Randy came home from one of his meetings the other day with an extra box lunch.  In it was a yummy sandwich, pasta salad, brownie, kettle chips -- and this:
A single plastic fork, which we didn't need...
We, in Dutch fashion, redeemed the lunch. It was not wasted...Imagine that it might have been thrown away if Randy had not taken it home! Terrible!

But the fork? We didn't need the fork...

Since then, it's been wandering around my kitchen...


...not really fitting in anywhere...

It's a perfectly fine fork, and never been used, but we have no use for it...right now...
So in my Dutch thinking, I keep leaving it around for the day, (probably many, many days hence) when we might need it.

In the meantime, it's in the way...and a constant annoyance...
But I just can't seem to do this:

Curses on my over-developed sense of responsibility!!

I should be free enough to dispose of it...but...

Anyone need a single plastic fork?
Please?
I'll feel so much better...

This funny and you are not alone. Yesterday I finally tossed a plastic spoon after working around it, moving it and thinking about it the entire freaking summer!!!!
I am finished except for the guilt.
