I had lunch with a friend today and we had Japanese food. As usual, I had a little trouble with my chopsticks. I mean, I can wield them well enough to get most of my food in my mouth but I do so quite clumsily sometimes. It’s a skill I haven’t quite mastered…yet.
So, for those of you who are like me—chopstick impaired—here a couple of websites and a video that might help. The photo at right is of disposable chopsticks in the cafeteria of Waseda University, Japan. I just found it so interesting. A western pail would contain plastic forks, spoons, knives, and <shudder> sporks.
Itadakimasu! (that’s bon appetit in Japanese)
