Sometimes my brother-in-law will absent-mindedly twirl one chopstick around like a helicopter blade while keeping the other in position


School kids in Japan do this too.

I saw where it was proffered that playing video games made some better surgeons. I wonder if this also would help in such areas.

@Francis,
A pretty lady, Francis, definitely a pretty lady.

Funny how discussions on the most inane things can lead us to such wonderful places.

we went to a korean BBQ joint last night, so i had my first meal with chopsticks.
struggled mightily with the salad, but started to get the hang of it with my entree (chicken, veg + udon noodles).

i now see the benefit of eating this way -- slowing down, savoring each bite.
it may not be for everyone.
but as long as you aren't in a rush, i recommend trying it...

@tsarstepan,

gettin' better, but don't like eating rice or mashed taters with them.
i either add a binding agent (shredded cheese), or grab a fork...

@Phoenix32890,
I love eating with chopsticks. I have become quite good at it as well.

I think it's fun!

@Region Philbis,
I don't have the patience to eat nonfried/nonsticky rice with chopsticks.

You'd be consider a martial arts master of the chopsticks if you can use chopsticks to eat (drink) soup broth from soup.

@Region Philbis,
Really was a tough task to eat Thanksgiving dinner with chopsticks last night. I will admit to some difficulty picking up the turkey leg with the chopsticks.

For soup, I used to use chinese ceramic soup spoons.. I've no idea if they are what all in china eat soup with. I bet much of it is just drunk from the bowl, unless the soup is full of bulky ingredients.

@ossobuco,
Japanese drink from the bowl.
Chinese use those spoons you described.
Bulky-ingredients soups (e.g. wonton noodle soup) require a combination
of chopsticks and spoon.

@George,
Yeah.... I just didn't know about all of China, quite a humongous territory.

Picturing slurping from a bowl and being nose smacked with a heavy wonton..
