I am not sure when I got so scared of new things, but undoubtably at some point I did. One thing that always terrified me was Chopsticks- not the plinky plonky chopsticks, because somewhere along the line at school someone taught me to play that, but I forget now. No, I mean the eating kind- the no knife and fork kind. I never tried them so frightening were they, after all I manage to get food down my front all the time. Then in the Autumn when we were allowed I shared a Chinese take away with my family- humilation was mine- my 9 year old grandson can use chopsticks. So for Christmas Mr E kindly gave me some, and this week the time had come, after all how hard can they be, and I was still high on my ability to cut four strips of fabric, and I was searching for an “Artist’s Date” which is jolly hard during lockdown. No more excuses.
You tube to the rescue- chopsticks to the ready.
They make it look so easy!
Right start cooking.
Ready, steady, EAT.
One clean plate, and only one noodle down my front! No knives or forks either.
I almost feel I could challenge a monster to a fight! Getting braver..
Love to know if anyone else is trying new things this year, and being a little bit braver. Do tell. And can you use chopsticks?
