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.
