Ok, so we recently had some pei wei (YUMMMMM!) and while we were there, i spotted this little girl (who was totally american, not even chinese!) eating with chop sticks and i was so jealous! Yes, it sounds so immature, but i really want to be able to eat chinese food with chop sticks darn it! And every time i try i end up getting so frustrated and break them in half, or in this most recent case, just tossed them to Jackson and he had fun banging things with them. Why is this so difficult?
Step 1: Pick up the first chopstick with the middle finger and thumb. Stiffen your hand for a firm grip. Have the broad end of the chopstick lay on the part where your thumb and index finger connect. Rest the narrow end on the tip of your ring finger, and hold it in place with the tip of your middle finger. (Hint: try holding it the way you hold a pen to write. It might rest on your ring finger or your middle finger, held in place by your index finger. Place the chopstick then lift your index finger so it can hold the second chopstick.)
Ok, so was this totally useless for anyone else??
