"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons." (T.S.Eliot)
Coffee spoons? It doesn't seem to make sense.
One coffee spoon = one year.Unfortunately, this theory isn't really valid when we consider it in the context of modern Einsteinian Spoonerisms. According to Einstein, the length of Spoon-time changes in relation to certain variables, including:
1) The speed at which the spoon is travelling
2) The curvature of this area of spoon-time
3) The presence of this man.
4) Whether the spoon is a plastic or a silver one.
All of these variables have an influence on whether, in technical terms, the normal spoon-year will occur (in Spoon-time terminology) Spooner, or Later.
