PiBoIdMo Day #17: Goodnight Spoon

Today, I wrote an homage to a favorite picture book, inspired by Ryan Hipp's blog post. Mine is probably more direct than what he had in mind though. In fact, it's probably too direct! I don't think it's publishable, because people would think from the title that it's making fun of Goodnight Moon, when it really isn't. Maybe that can be fixed, but anyway, this month is just about writing 30 first drafts. I'll figure out later what to do with them.

Here's the beginning of the story:
In the kitchen drawers the utensils bed down. After a busy day helping us eat. And open jars. And scratch the itch. And astound our friends.

Goodnight knives.

Goodnight forks.

Goodnight spoons.
