Promise

OK, so the bad girls made me promise that I would post about this. Last night I ordered Chinese food for our meeting and I was so determined to use the chopsticks. I really tried. But it just was not working. I was stabbing at my food, and unable to get much rice at all. I asked the girls if I was doing it right but I think they were all too busy stuffing their faces to really notice. I gave up and used a fork. Then later as we sat around the living room talking, I saw that Amberly still had her chopsticks and that they were (GASP) separate! I had never broken my chopsticks apart and had been trying to use them when they were connected together at the top. When I confessed my surprise at Amberly's chopsticks the other girls couldn't believe I didn't know you were supposed to break the sticks apart before using. Yes, I am a chopstick novice. Much to the enjoyment (and ridicule) of my friends.

Becky,
I was in Chinatown in San Fransisco the first time I tried chopsticks. I am eating when the next thing I know one of my sticks flips out of my hand and lands on a table near me. Talk about embarrassing! I have never tried them since. (maybe if I had not separated them, it would not have flew out of my hand :))
