I'm Fooding

[weather|rainy]
[mood|traumatized]

I'm eating noodles with a fork... it's very traumatizingly embarrassing.

They have instant noodles up the wall and down the other side, but don't have wooden disposable chopsticks in the company utensil drawer. I think I'll grab a fistful from somewhere and stock up for them because this is hopeless. It's clumsy and embarrassing. I'm splooshing soup all over myself.

"Twirl it", people tell me. I'M TRYING!!! *seethe* >={

Okay, I'm getting the hang of this, but it's still not that elegant.

I'm glad it's not rice though... I cannot eat rice with a fork on a plate. Rice belongs in a bowl, eaten with chopsticks. It doesn't work any other way. I don't know how Westerners do it.

Use your knife to push your rice onto your fork.

How do you eat noodles with chop sticks anyway. I could be good to know if I ever get to Japan.

Re: knife/fork coordination

I've tried that... it works but you can't heap it very well. Or I can't...

Re: noodles with chopsticks

1) Grab a bundle of noodles with your chopsticks and pull upwards, you'll get a small wad of noodles and then a trail of noodles hanging down

2) Put your face parallel to the table and insert chopsticks with small wad of noodles into mouth

3) Close mouth, don't worry about the trail of noodles sticking out of your mouth

4) Cut noodles with your upper teeth and lower lip, letting the noodle trail that was sticking out fall back into the bowl

I'll have to avoid doing that on a first date.
