Cutting to the chase about cutlery
In Eden we had no such tools. All our food was raw, unprocessed and fresh from the vines that grew them. We required no etiquette and no table manners. For one thing, we had no tables.
I think your species invented utensils because yours is the only one that cooks it's food. I say that if your food is too hot to the touch than let it cool. Or eat it raw.
Why can't I simply drink my soup from the bowl? Why must I use a knife to put peanut butter on bread? My hand is bigger. Wouldn't it simply be easier to eat peas like grapes rather than scooping them with a pronged instrument? Why eat fruit with your hands, but fruit salad with a spoon? Don't get me started on chopsticks!
Sigh. These rules are so confusing, it makes me want to throw my handful of mashed potatos in the air in disgust...
