Soup Spoons: The Adventure Begins
« on: May 28, 01, 07:49:46 pm CDT »

Christian was always looking for something new. She had it all. The cars. The men. The money. The only thing that she couldn't get was the perfect soup spoon. Try as she might, she never could get the right one. Too shiny, to dull, not big enough. It just never ends. Where can I get another one?

Her quest led her to every restaurant within driving distance... but yet, no matter how many spoons she pilferred, she just could never find the "right" one.

She kept them in a locked cedar chest in the pantry. Every so often she would drag the heavy chest into the kitchen and sit crosslegged on the floor in front of it. With nothing but candle light dancing about the room, her vigil would begin. Sitting there in her nightshirt, she would stare for a long time at the reddish streaks of grain in the wood, making scenes in her mind like a child staring up at the clouds in a grassy field.

Eventually, when her legs would start to tingle with sleep, she would draw the large brass key from the leather thong that hung constantly from her neck. Slowly she would turn the key until the lock would suddenly give with an audible click. Placing the key back around her neck, Christian would then lift the lid of the chest until it's contents winked at her from their resting place.

Sometimes, she could here them calling out to her. It just didn't seem right that silverware could talk. That is why she kept them in the chest. They couldn't talk to her there.

Christian didn't know how long she stared transfixed at the rows of silver and gold. It was like that everytime. She would open the chest and the spoons would... not talk... sing. Yes, that's it. The spoons sang to her. A glorious melody of such unrestrained beauty as to make the songbirds in the trees grow still.

Lovingly, she removed each utensil, inspecting it closely for any signs of tarnish or dust, and vigorously polishing away any such offense with a special cloth. She then laid each piece on a soft towel with great care until the chest sat empty before her.

And yet all her polishing and loving care was in vain, for Christian still did not have the perfect soup spoon. Pondering this peculiarity, Christian decided to list the characteristics she thought necessary in the perfect soup spoon.

She dug out her note pad and pen and started writing.

1.  Silver
2.  Have a lovely tenor. Must be able to sing first tenor.
3.  Have a nice round head and be able to handle to hot liquids


With this list, she felt sure that she could find the perfect soup spoon. She knew that she had to do something more than make a list though. Then it hit her. SHe would do what that 'Tomb Raider' chick did. She would go on an adventure!!

But then Christian remembered something. She wasn't nearly as good looking as Angelina Jolie and she didn't have a movie deal. Christian decided she was just going to have to have a normal adventure without the guns and violence and hot guys. After all, she was searching for the perfect spoon, not trying to save the world.

No she wasn't going to save the world. And she already had the hot guys. And as for looking like Angelina Jolie, Angelina would have to try and keep up. She did have the cool toys though. It helps when daddy is a billionaire.

She headed down to her Land Rover and got ready to leave, when suddenly.....

When suddenly she remembered she had forgotten her keys. "Damn," she muttered running back into the house. Snatching her keys she raced back to her land rover and hopped in. Heading for the highway Christian checked her reflection in the mirror. "Damn, I look good today," she thought.
Driving along the road Christian picked her first destination. It was...

McDonald's. She just had a craving for a Big Mac. She hit drive thru and was off to her next stop.

Curiously looking at the spork she wondered aloud, "What the hell is this?" Knowing that it wasn't the perfect soup spoon she tossed it out her open window and continued her search. She decided her next stop would be the copa cabana club. It was the hottest club north of havana so it had to have some really good soup spoons there.

ON the way she noticed a sign for the best little whorehouse in texas.  How odd she thought i live in North Dakota.  Needless to say she stopped in on the house knowing that spoons galore could be found in a place such as this

Spoons and dirty old men. That's what she would find. And if there was one thing Christian loved, it was spoons. Stepping into the whorehouse Christian saw a stage lit by gaudy lights with a topless dancer on it. There were only two other people in the joint and one was the bartender. Looking around Christian spied a door, which she thought for sure would lead to the kitchens where she could check out the spoons. However it wasn't the kitchen she stepped into upon going through that door.

She came face to face with a ten-foot drooling grizzly bear, quickly she reached for her trusty 9mm automatic and unloaded the entire clip in to the bears forehead, the bear fell to the floor with a thump. The ringing in her ears would not stop shaking her head she realized the ringing was her alarm clock and this had all been a dream…

"Well that was a stupid dream," Christian thought clambering out of bed. "Now I have to start my quest for the perfect soup spoon all over again." Just then the doorbell rang.

She was almost inclined to ignore it, after all, she wasn't dressed to have company, but she figured, "what the hell".  Throwing a robe on, she went to the door, only to find that nobody was there.  "Hmm," she thought, and opened the door.

There, on the front step, was a box.  Not being terribly clever first thing in the morning, she grabbed the box and took it inside.  She sat down on the floor of the hallway and opened it.  Inside, she found a map and a letter.  So, she opened the letter and read:

But something puzzled her about the strange box. Just who had sent it to her? And why would they send her a map to the best little whorehouse when she had just dreamt about it? One thing was sure, if she was going to run into a grizzly bear she just wasn't gonna go through any doors alone. So dressing hurriedly, Christian ran out the door and hopped into her land rover. Then she ran back inside for her keys. But eventually she was on the road and headed to...
