    Using chopsticks is easier said than done. Never could get the hand of it.

    Chopstick master.

    I'm a sushi fiend, so I've been using chopsticks since I was about 5 or 6. Practice makes perfect.

    Ever since my girlfriend went over to her friend's dinner where chopsticks were laid out on the table, she's been eating with them ever since. She carries a pair of chopsticks everywhere she goes and tries to eat w/ them as much as possible. She says eating with chopsticks makes her eat slower, thus eating less food!!

    I learned from the little instructions on the side of the packet.
    Quite handy, if I do say so myself.

    The first time I actually tired to use chopsticks was the first time I went to a Japanese restaurant. It was pretty hard, it also was a little embarassing because I had to ask the waitress for a spoon and fork because I was having a hard time. Hey it was lunch and I didn't have time to learn. I'm pretty good now.

    I can do pretty well using chopsticks with most chinese food. Noodles with chop sticks- no thanks. End up trying to twirl the noodles around the chopsticks spaghetti style.

    Funny story-

    Let me preface this by saying I had eaten with chopsticks before this, but was still a little unsure if I was doing it right.

    When my new husband and I were first dating he took me to a sushi restaurant. He asked me if I was going to use chop-sticks and I apprehensively agreed to (I wanted to make sure I did everything perfectly and was hesitant to in front of him, even thou i would have looked worse not using them in a sushi restaurant). Inferring that my apprehension must be due to inexperience, he tried to give me a quick verbal lesson on how to use them *how kind*. So the food comes and he dives in essentially "showing off" his skills and I pick of the chopsticks and start to eat. All of sudden he stops and has this shocked look on his face and eyes wide. Then he starts flipping out...lol, Apparently, the way I hold chopsticks is a sign of elite-ness or something bc I hold them at the very very tip top of the sticks, whereas I guess most people hold them an inch or so from the top. Has anyone ever heard of this? I hadnt.

    I thought it was hilarious, bc 1) I had no idea there was "perfect" way to hold them and 2) he thought he was the expert and was gonna teach me something and then i rocked it out...victory =)

    But the best part of the whole night was some chick brought a date to this place and when the food came the guy FLIPPED out about it being 1) raw and 2) fish lololol hilarious

    after years of trying, I gave up. Hell, I spill a lot of food using a fork even.

    I mastered chopsticks when I lived in Japan for a year. I can even eat spaghetti with chopsticks, whilst drunk (had TONS of practice of eating with chopsticks whilst drunk, I was in the Navy...lol).
