Toothpick Saboteur

One time my family went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. After the "tour," we went through the gift shop and cheese-buying area, where you can taste-test different cheeses, which are cut up in little blocks on plates, and toothpicks are provided to be used as spear-like utensils. My Dad deftly picked up a toothpick, and with the skills of a ninja, skewered 4 cubes of cheese in one fell swoop. We all shouted a hearty "Hurrah!" at his skills.

At Christmas, Mom had a tiny hotpot of little sausages for appetizing snacks. My husband, with the skills of a ninja butcher, picked up a toothpick, and deftly skewered THREE wieners in one fell swoop.

A hush fell over the family.
