Tony can now use chopsticks!

For the first time ever, Tony ate a whole meal using chopsticks.  Sunday, he ate his whole bowl of noodles (corkscrew shaped Western pasta noodles) using the Oriental eating utensils.

Tony is four years old.  His father first used chopsticks at forty years of age.  So on one point, Tony is over thirty years ahead of his father in personal development.

Tony's father can only proclaim triumphalism from the fact that most Western children, of Tony's age, can't use chopsticks either

So in a triumphalist note, Tony's father has this to say to parents with children who are Western:  Ha Ha Ha!  Take that!  Your four-year old child can't use chopsticks!  My can!  Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
