Yep….and forks.  Not just tea spoons, but soup spoons and larger.  You test them first to make sure you can’t bend them, then you do the procedure.I am working up to a shovel.

A “spiritual healer’ taught me how to do this.  It basically involves focusing your full attention on the spoon until you become “one” with it.

Then, you pick it up and bend it, but you have to be careful to not use your thumbs because that acts as a lever and is cheating You bend it into the shape of a V.  Now, this this spiritual healer can twist the spoon around itself, but I haven’t mastered that.

She told me that, with my attention, I am actually molding the steel in the spoon.  This strikes me as dubious.  If I could do that, I’d be off to collect $1,000,000 from the Amazing Randi

If is obviously a self-hypnosis thing, but it blows my mind.  People are coming from far and wide with their spoons. I have a pile of bent spoons up to my knees.

I am trying to think of a useful way to exploit this talent, but I am baffled.

Any suggestions?

That is a brilliant idea.  I am able to bend spoons in a circle, so I can interlace them and make necklaces.  I have SO many spoons, so the necklaces can be ornate or modern or simple.  I will tell people about my spoon bending gift and how these necklaces have spiritual power.  I am gonna be RICH!  The whole county that I live in is filled with affluent middle-aged women who are devout Deepak Chopraists and Oprah Winfreyites.  I think I can appeal to the Christian crowd if my presentation includes Jesus because otherwise they may think I am demon-possessed.  I will have to think about that possibility a little more.  If anyone has spoons that have an image engraved on them that brings to mind a crown of thorns, I am willing to make a deal.

In what sense?  Puzzled how I can bend spoons?  As I said…self hypnosis, I assume

Saralynn has discovered her inner spoon bender.  Martin has advised her on how to profit from this.  Saralynn is on her way to making millions.  Bye Bye Martin.

Back when I could bend spoons with my mind I made a set that looked just like that from straight spoons.

Now that’s impressive!  Back when I could bend spoons with my mind, they always ended up looking like forks.

In fact that sounds precisely how my guru back then invented the spork.

I guess she beat you to it.

It basically involves focusing your full attention on the spoon until you become “one” with it.


Wait, isn’t that dangerous territory though? How do you know that you’ve successfully decoupled from the spoon later on? Do you suddenly crave activities like full body scooping up milk and cereal? At random intervals, do you just go “Wow, I feel the need to immerse myself in soup or pudding or something now”? What happens when you pass Jello cups in the grocery store? It sounds like a complicated life.


Either way, I will look forward to the Etsy store. I would be honored to be your first annoying customer and convo you with “Ok, but this is for my cousin’s birthday party, so can you just bend it into her initials and also make it purple and add a whimsical woodland creature with your mind too? What do you mean that’s three dollars extra. Three dollars?! Could I talk you down to one and a half for lavender? That’s only like half purple so it should be half price, right?”
