Son of the Junk Drawer

Continuing our march around the kitchen... well, actually, we're still in the junk drawer. We might be there for a while. It's a big drawer.

But at least this time it's useful stuff! Mostly. We have:

1. A cake server - ok, that's kinda useless - I always forget I have one and use a knife & fork the 3 times a year we have cake.

2. A big fork. For anything that needs a big fork. I have no idea what that would be.

3. A lemon reamer - ok, this one makes sense, it's like the cake decorating tools - not used very often, but when you do need it, there's nothing else you can use instead.

4. A pizza cutter - right. When was the last time you ordered pizza and it showed up uncut?

5. Three beaters for my hand mixer - the wire ones are indispensible, but I've never used the blender extension.

And finally:
6. The knife sharpener. Which I've also never used. And I know I SHOULD use it, but then I can never figure out the right angle to create the perfect edge, and then it seems like too much trouble, soI put it away and continue cutting with a dull knife. I keep hoping that owning a knife sharpener will make me into the kind of person that sharpens knives, but that hasn't happened yet.

There's a metaphor in there somewhere.
