Do you know how to use chopsticks?
Chinese people love asking this question. My answer is usually, ” Well yes if I didn’t I would starve.” They are absolutely flabbergasted when you tell them that chopsticks exist in other countries.
This past week I took my students Kelly and Elaine out for Suzie’s Pizza. It was to celebrate Kelly’s article that was published in an NBA magazine (in Chinese, but she translated it for me so i could read it) and Elaine for winning the top prize at an English speech competition. Yes, my students are amazing. When we got our pizza they took their fork and knife and asked, “ok what do we do now?” Ahh I loved it! I told them to put their utensils down and hope their hands were clean because this is how you properly eat pizza.
