    No I've never tried, and I doubt I could do it.

    I'm pretty good, my wife is from China. She taught me the right way one time when we were first dating, and then I made a point of eating every single meal with them for the rest of the week. By the next weekend, she was impressed with how fast I picked it up.

    No I try and try and just quit because I don't want my food to get cold, but I kick some serious *kitten* with a fork!

    I don't understand how people eat rice with chopsticks, that looks extremely challenging
    Lol, part of the reason Asians like their rice more "sticky".

    heck no I couldn't use them if my life depended on it. I guess I would lose weight if I had to use them
    Lol, if anything it would teach people who didn't know how to use them to eat their food slower.

    Tell the truth. What do native chopstick users think when they're observing adults eating in public who are not good at eating with chopsticks?
    We're entertained when watching. :D

    I do okay with them. I use them mostly for sushi and larger foods.

    Rice, you lift the bowl to the mouth and use them as a shovel.

    If I wasn’t so devout I’d pretend to use it like a little wand, but I’m not a heretic

    Yes indeed, I am skilled with them. Sushi is one of my favorite foods. I also made sure my husband and kids are good with them. He was thankful after his first trip to China for work. : )
