New52 | Week 24
Eating an entire meal with chopsticks has been on my Bucket List for a while. I married a professional chopstick user – he’s one of those annoying types who can pick up a single grain of rice with his chopsticks – but the majority of my chopstick attempts have resulted in a plethora of soy sauce all over my person.
And it’s a shame because I love sushi, and I know that it’s actually more customary to eat sushi with your hands (I do that at home) but when I’m out a restaurant I look like a REAL goober eating it with a fork.
So I’ve been working on my chopstick skills. I’m still working my way up to my nunchuck skills. (Awkward outdated Napoleon Dynamite reference – I hated that movie, was I the only one?)
I’m happy to report that, in the month of June, Two Thousand Eleven, I was able to make it through an entire night of sushi at my favorite restaurant without using my hands OR a fork. Chopstick skillz, baby!
I couldn’t pick up a single grain of rice to save my life, though. Hopefully it will never come down to that.
About This Project
New52 is a project started by Christine and I that invites participants to live outside the box a little bit more and try things outside their comfort zone. I’m aiming for 52 straight weeks of New, but it’s 100% okay if you decide to participate only once in a while. New52 isn’t about making a life-altering change every week, it’s about keeping an open mind and embracing little changes in your life.
If you participate this week, please leave a link to your blog post, scrapbook page, photograph or other recorded history of your walk on the wild side in the link list below. You can also post images to our Flickr Group! We would love to see what you were inspired to do.
