Hearne on the Street: I So Got Forked
Atop the slag heap of junior high rituals rests the esteemed art of forking…
Never been there, never done that? Not a problem.
The Urban Dictionary describes forking as “sticking forks into someone’s yard
– usually forms words or pictures
-can be used to laugh at a friend or to piss off an enemy
– We were bored last night, so we forked my ex-boyfriend “
What UD left out was it’s generally done with the plastic forks they sell at grocery stores. In some circles it replaced the time tested (albeit messier) practice of tee-peeing or launching toilet paper roll streamers into trees.
Being somewhat removed from high school – let alone junior high – I was somewhat surprised to awaken Sunday morning to the artful display of plastic forks that lined my front yard and spelled out my initials.
Hey, I got forked – who knew?
I literally have no idea who dunnit. Thought about Will Gregory but, nah, he’s too cheap. These were some really nice plastic forks – cutlery quality if you will.
Could it be the start of some new chapter in my life? Can’t wait for prom season.
