My dad is one of those guys who are just impossible to shop for. Which is problematic because he has birthdays and whatnot just like everyone else. But occasionally, I manage to find something I think is absolutely perfect for him. Like last week, when I gave him a titanium spork as a birthday present.
This particular gift qualifies as perfect because it is simultaneously useful and useless. I mean, sporks are convenient, especially for frequent travelers like my dad. But titanium? Overkill is too subtle a word to express the reality of an eating utensil made out of a near-indestructible metal.
Dad got a kick out of it; my wife wants one of her own, and my niece thinks it's the coolest ice cream spoon ever.
Like I said, perfect.
Oh, I got it at Think Geek
if anyone needs to get one for themselves.
