I am all about education. Aim high! Reach for the stars! Dream big! Along those lines, let me ask this question - how many out there know how to use chopsticks??? Please be truthful. I don't care if you have ever picked them up and tried, I want to know, can you pick up a single grain of rice and without breaking a sweat bring it to your lips?
I cannot do it. I used to feel that people who did use chopsticks were being pretentious or showing off their prestidigitation.
I have read the little lessons (as seen at right) and tried and am totally retarded when it comes to this skill. Even my husband can do it and only uses a fork in deference to my handicap.
One time a waiter felt sorry for me and even bound the chopsticks together like they do for children. I was a little better off but still just felt like cramming my face into my pile of spicy shrimp and rice rather than use the "sticks of torture".
I was considering adding this to my "Goals for Life List". One of my other goals for life is having all of my bras and panties match (I know, I know - fly too close to the sun, you risk being burned, but I must continue to raise the bar!).
