Rutager was actually getting pretty good with some chopsticks towards the end of the dinner on Saturday. Someone needs to make him some custom chopsticks so that he can practice before going to Toyota Sushi.

Randy,

If you were uncomfortable with my flirting last year, watch out, I've been practicing on John Raftery.

My chopstick skills were so good that the waiter brought me a fork- I refused to use it.

Best,
Rutager

Whoa! I had no idea that flirting was what you were attempting!

Rutager had this curious habit of shaking my hand and introducing himself to me about every five minutes. (I'll admit that my memory isn't what it used to be, but once an hour would have been more than enough.)

If you were practicing this technique for use on women I want to wish you the best of luck in your future encounters.

I've never understood this obsession with chopsticks. I don't use them and never will. They're awkward and cumbersome to use. I maintain that there's no untensil better designed, or more useful and versatile than the fork.

Although, there ARE some occasions when only a shovel will do.

But what about that last little grain of rice?

Actually when I was first taught to use chopsticks in Japan, I was taught to hold my bowl up and almost shovel the food down. Of course I was only 7.

Michael, my granddaughter (who's about Calder's age) loves it too.

What did you think of "Levitated Mass"?
