Abstract

Is there anyone who hasn't tried to use chop sticks? Even the resistance of the most indifferent, blase person has been broken by the fascination held by chop sticks. Their uniqueness, and the fact that we rarely see them used makes us doubly interested in them. Most of us Americans have considered the skillful management of chop sticks an art and have had very little chance to have that opinion changed. It was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. K. Chang, where I was fortunate enough to be a dinner guest, that I had a chance to "try my hand" at that art. "This is the most hopeless thing I've ever tried," went through my mind, at my initial experience. At the same time I was wondering how the Chinese could be satisfied with seemingly such unsatisfactory implements. Then, after a few lessons from an exceptionally patient member of that race, I began to realize that the chop sticks were, yes, almost easy to manipulate!
