With a Spoon

100 words about cutting somebody's heart out with a spoon
(c) Sonya, 2016

The humble spoon. It looks innocuous. Some might call it benign.

Some have no imagination.

I don’t have a lot of time for people who pride themselves on their knife skills. Cutting out your victim’s heart with a knife, where’s the artistry in that? Also, a knife takes away the element of surprise. You pull a knife, people scream and fight and beg for their lives before you’ve begun to have any fun.

I get my spoon out, people laugh. They think they’ve been pranked, look for the camera.

They stop laughing pretty sharpish.

Because it’s dull. It hurts more.


What a rubbish week it’s been. First David Bowie, now Alan Rickman.

Remember Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Not a great movie, but it featured this immortal line from Rickman’s Sheriff of Nottingham: “Because it’s dull, you twit. It’ll hurt more.”

      1. You’re welcome 🙂 I happen to love that movie. I saw it when I was 11 or 12 and I thought it was awesome. My opinion hasn’t changed even though as an adult I recognize it’s shortcomings. It’s still one of my favorite films.

  1. Very sad that cancer took two wonderful artistic men away. I also heard that Celine Dion’s husband passed away this week with throat cancer. Very sad! Your story is wonderful! I can picture (as hard as it is to imagine) someone cutting someone’s heart out with a spoon.
