Ambi

One of Daddy's not entirely secret vanities is his ambidextrous chopstick prowess. There are cultural reasons why such skills are a rarity, especially in Asia, but it's occasionally convenient at cramped tables. It's also a fun egotrip to mess with the "Do you need a fork, sir?" types. Call it an egg's homage to Westley and Inigo.

So it gave me great pleasure tonight at dinner to note that Trinh was eating her phở with chopsticks in her left hand. She wasn't doing too badly, but she was having more trouble than usual.

We both cracked up when she looked up in frustration and said, "Do you think I forgot how to do this?" She switched hands and blew through the rest of her noodles...
