Do you have a'silly' favourite?

We all have favourites..shirts, socks, shoes, pen even shops and animals etc..
I have a favourite spoon. Yes, that's right, spoon.  We had a cutlery set when we got married, thirty five years ago, and over the years it has gradually diminished with bits being lost, we now have two knives and a spoon.
My wife thinks I'm mad but I prefer this spoon to any of the newer cutlery spoons. MY spoon is not so big as the others, MY spoon doesn't drip like the others. I like MY spoon.
Anyone else have any quirky favourites?

It's a DB love spoon Wink
I have a favourite pair of denim shorts, that were made after the knees wore out from my favourite Jeans,
Since giving up smoking & gaining a bit of weight as a result, I have to have the button undone,
SWMBO keeps threatening to buy me new shorts, I bet she will not be able to find a pair like mine ;P

Re: Do you have a'silly' favourite?

I eat big meals and used to have a favourite plate bought from a pottery in Dorset. It was oval but very large with a nice pattern on it. It got broken when the ex-wife left it on top of the cooker one day with a gas still on Angry
I then found out that my parents had one exactly the same which they gave to me. Since moving to where we are now I haven't used it. I hope it's around somewhere still Cheesy

A  coffee mug.  My eldest brother bought it when on a sea cadets sailing completion abroad during mid 70's and my mother when ape when she heard the price, think its was £1.50 when £1.50 could buy a lot.  Big half pint mug, with thick sides and base so it holds the heat and yet to break, not like all the other mugs bought by our family.

When I was a child I used to have a dish with a lion tiger printed on the inside. Loved that dish and think my mother still has it somewhere. Too small to use these days, though Wink
