GREAT NEWS!!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS! You will NOT believe it. An incredible event occurred tonight, one never before seen by human eyes (erm, or by any type of eyes). An event not previously thought possible. A spectaular feat of co-ordination and dexterity, with no resulting disatrous effects. The crowds were shocked. The crowds were awed. The crowds didn't know what hit them. Well, nothing hit them, actually, which wouldn't have been the case previously. It truly was a glorious, heavenly event. Mm, I do believe I heard angels rejoicing. So what was this incredible feat worthy of such an introduction, you ask?

I, Hillary, ate an entire meal with chopsticks and didn't have to guiltily and apologetically ask for a fork even once!!!

Take THAT, friend who gave me "cheater chopsticks" for Christmas, which were glued to either side of a spring loaded clothespeg.

Oh yeah, baby.

Oh.

Yeah.

Maybe this should be my New Year's Resolution...

That is quite an achievement! I haven't mastered it myself, I'll keep eating with a fork and without guilt. Congrats!

You know, the coolest thing just happened.... I just read a blog of yours from the future! Really! It said...

"2007 was the turning point in my life. Right after midnight, everything changed and I was suddenly able to do all sorts of wonderous magical things I'd previously thought to be impossible and insurmountable. But suddenly, everything fell into place, and there was nothing I couldn't do. It was miraculous. And it all started with the chopsticks...."

Neat huh? Wait 'till you see the rest of what's coming! :D

Melissa! That's AWESOME! You win the creative comment of the day award!

Cool, Now you just need to keep practising and waiting for them to open one of these in Vancouver, yummy.

You ate with chopsticks...but did you use the sticks together to pick things up, or did you just spear your food with the chopstick like you were a caveman with a spear?

Hillary said...

Dang! I was hoping noone would ask that! Hee hee

Actually, I picked stuff up! All but the gyozas. Those suckers are SLIPPERY! They got speared. :P

That is incredible, Hillary! Now to tackle a classroom full of kids who would rather still be on Christmas break...

Wooohooooo! That IS tough, I know! Every time we go out for Mongolian Grill, I start out with chopsticks and end up with a fork. The only food I can reliably eat with chopsticks is maki sushi, and only because the sticky rice holds it all together...lol!

Where can I get me a pair of those "cheater chopsticks"?

Nice work Hillary! Congratulations!

What a rude friend you have - implying that you couldn't use chopsticks and all. You sure showed her... (ahhh... THEM) :)

Jenn said...

lol - congratulations!!

Hillary said...

Trudy! I LOVE my cheater chopsticks... I'm jsut glad I don't ACTUALLY have to use them. I seriously half-considered taking them with me... but I think, really, that would have been WAAAY worse than asking for a fork. Yeah. Definitely worse! ;)

niiiiiiice! I remember that day, too. I was SO proud of myself. All I wanted to do was eat with chopsticks after that. :)
