Am I the only person who consistently prefers “baby forks” (aka salad forks) and “baby spoons” (teaspoons) to dinner forks and soup spoons? Given a choice, I’ll always use the smaller implement… why would I want to use a fork that stabs me ’cause the tines or too long, or a spoon that holds more liquid than I can gracefully eat?
(Obvioulsy, in fancy-pants situations I use the appropriate cutlery but at home, on my own I’m all about the tiny flatware.)

I tend to pick the smaller forks when I eat.

Bad Stu. No biscuit.
L. does this, too.

Nope, you’re not the only one. :)
Fork Users of Small Size Unite!

When I was a kid, I suspect that my (small) mom and I both used the smaller utensils, while my dad probably used the full-size.
I realized that I was doing something “odd” when Brian Morin was having breakfast at my house one day when we were in our twenties. I gave him a teaspoon for his cereal and he said, “Uh… I’m gonna need something bigger, man.”
Ever since, I’ve been using the big stuff.
