Chopsticks 101...

 Chinatown. 
12 noon.
Hungry.
From inside the Ocean Garden Restaurant things seem pretty normal.
And then...the waitress hands us these!
Hhhmmmm...lets see...
O.K...stabbing works well...
Just..hold...on...long...enough...
  YES!
Next one?
Darn these things are slippery!
Wait a minute...
GOT IT!
K. My turn now...
Like this?
...maybe not...try again...
One...
Two...
Three!!! 
How about the old 'one in each hand trick...
Yup that works not bad either...
Any way you look at it, the food makes it into the belly...
Now if we can only figure out these addresses.....
