The Perfect Tool

I thought I had it down perfectly.

Three batches at a time, the trebled recipe written in bold sharpie.  Pans of the correct size and hue and material.  One teaspoon for the wet ingredients and one teaspoon for the dry, one tablespoon, one half-tablespoon,  and my old faithful silver one cup fit nicely in the not-too-big-not-too-small glass bowl, along with the Revereware saucepan.  The bowl lives on the counter when The Brownie List is in full swing, all self-contained and self-satisfied.

Until I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and found this:
It slides right into the corner of an 8x8 pan or brownies divided in half then in half then the otherway twice..... even if you make the cuts with a bigger spatula, to save time.
It bends its beveled-to-a-point edge underneath without damaging the brownie's structural integrity while scraping the pan clean without scratching the non-stick surface, just as the packaging  promised.  The blade is exactly the length of two brownies; you slide and lift without worrying about dragging an unsuspecting neighbor along for the ride.
Two brownies fit perfectly in the snack bags I use.

It's as if someone designed it with me in mind.
A Brownie Spatula..... who'd a thunk it?
