Ginny vs. chopsticks
I have finally learned how to use chopsticks! This is a big deal because it was quite embarrassing attempting to eat with them in front of people. I've asked Derek a few times to show me how to use them but his response was something along the lines of "use them to pick up the food." Not helpful.
I was a little worried about going to Shabu-Zen because I knew it would involve moving food into a hot-pot and then to my mouth. For some reason it all clicked though and I was doing just fine. I kept showing Derek how good I was doing. "Look I'm finally getting food into my mouth!"
You tried to beat me and starve me chopsticks but I have persevered. Now I can eat at Chinese restaurant with no shame.
Shabu-Zen was quite yummy. I've never had a hot-pot dinner. I kind of pigged out but there was a lot of veggies so I don't feel so bad. I also had a Japanese mojito. I still can't figure out why it was Japanese. Imported ice from Japan? Made by a Japanese bartender? It's a mystery.
