No one else eats with my spoon.

Muhammad Abduh related that a European person asked, “Why do you not eat with a spoon?”  He said, “My spoon is my hand and my fingers.  Whereas I alone use my spoon to et, no one else being able to use it, and I alone being responsible to wash it,  you cannot be sure whether your spoon was  washed or not, nor do you know if the one who used it before you was healthy or sick.”
