I have in my house two very special bowls. I guess they're not that special, and you could find similar ones in stores, but they're special to me. They're sort of oblong in shape, with handles on either end.
What makes these bowls special are the laws associated with them. They are to be used ONLY for eating Kraft Dinner, or banana splits. They may also be used, on occasion, to hold carrot sticks. However, they must never be used to eat irradiated beans. This is the power of tradition in my house.
