I gaze enviously at the couple one table over who gracefully use chopsticks as if they were an extension of their limbs. And then I pick up my chopsticks, resolutely bend my fingers into the requisite position, and try one more time to pick up that stubborn piece of tofu.
I may never use chopsticks like someone who grew up with them. But I can dream.
