    I learned in my teens how to use chopsticks. I do OK with them; but I realized that, unless there is no choice, I do better with a knife and fork.

    It doesn’t make much sense. Food meant to be eaten with chopsticks can be eaten with a fork or a spoon.
    Even in the rare cases where the dish includes meat pieces that are bigger than a bite, you can do the same thing you do with chopsticks using a fork.
    Eating with chopsticks is more elegant though. So many different styles.
    When I enter a restaurant and see you westerners eating with forks, you all look the same to me ;D

    What’s this about “freeing up” a hand when using chopsticks? I don’t know that I’ve ever eaten with two hands…only in the instance of picking up a knife and cutting something. But that’s not “eating” with a knife or two hands. Don’t get me wrong…I adore this comic strip but this particular comment Betty is making makes no sense.

    Most folks from the British Empire eat with the fork in one hand and the knife in the other, but I don’t think that applies to Betty.

    last time I checked I didn’t have to use both hands on my fork.

    chopsticks can be fun. Unless you’re trying to pick up a cooked, sauced and flat mushroom.

    You’re kidding, right?

    Speaking not as a young woman but as a former young man, chopsticks do grave injury to the one aspect of food that I was most concerned about: sheer volume. They just don’t move very much product at a time. Even teaspoons are too small.

    I eat my peas with honey.
    I’ve done it all my life.
    It may seem kind of funny,
    but it keeps them on my knife.

    Yeah, everyone knows only young women text. Nobody else.

    Free up a hand?
    How many hands do you use to hold a fork?

    Actually, this is a Canadian comic strip, so no, not kidding at all.
