100 Things to do with Spatulas

So for those of you who were wondering this blog has no theme. I find it delightfully sporadic. Today’s post is about spatulas (in case you couldn’t understand that from the title). It all began one lovely Christmas morning when My sister Miranda bet me that I could not come up with 100 non-food related things to do with a spatula. (Side note: I don’t remember the context leading up to this bet. I will say my family is… different. And also that this conversation, by comparison to many others we’ve had, is not actually that strange.) As you might guess, I won the bet. It didn’t even take me a full day. The list goes as follows.

*1. You could use a spatula for Spatula fights (a.k.a sparring)

2. You could use a spatula as a fly swatter

6. If you were talented, you could juggle spatulas

7. You could use a spatula for delicatly pushing. For example, if there was a spider on the table and you wished for it to be  removed, but you were an animal lover and you didn’t want to kill it, then you could use a spatula to delicately push it off of the table.

8. You could use it for mashing something that wasn’t food. And yes, mashing is different than splatting.

Ok, some of these are fairly ridiculous. I mean, they only had to be approved by Miranda to make the list. For what it’s worth it is a list of things you COULD do with a spatula. Not things you WOULD do with a spatula. I was surprised by how many of them were some what legitimate. I’ve put an asterisk next to those I know have actually been done.

After this conversation my sister Paige made me a toy duck (I love ducks) out of a spatula for my birthday:

His name is Count Quackula

I recommend you all go buy some spatulas. They are very useful, as you can see.
