The Spoonholder

My favorite “Muskie legend” would have to be the tale of the spoonholder – AKA the gazeebo located on the Muskingum campus lake. The legend goes that if you kiss the love of your life there three times that you will be married. I remember my high school French teacher, a Muskingum alumni, telling me about this legend when I was a senior getting ready to come to Muskingum. Apparently, she had done just that – kissed her boyfriend on the spoonholder three times – and they had been married ever since. So far, I have had the chance to participate in this ongoing legend by kissing my boyfriend there twice. I am anxiously awaiting the third kiss, because that kiss may change my life  🙂 .
