Daily Prompt: 10,000 Spoons

Daily Prompt: 10,000 Spoons

 …When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic:


Alanis reached up and removed the goggles with the number 5 shades and set down her torch.

The sculpture was almost complete.

It had taken exactly 10,000 flatware spoons and the last one had just been soldered into place.

A single knife was now needed to complete the piece.


Years had been spent to collect the spoons that she used.

Treasures from garage sales and thrift store scavenger hunts.

Each find, a prize – carefully chosen for its place.

But the knife…


The butter knife had to be perfect.

  1. Nice imagination. It amazes me that we can write about any topic in the world, if only we are motivated. And to be motivated, you need to be in touch with your inner self and from the post I can see that you are.
