SH: Should we order those training chopsticks for you?
SH: Why not?
Me: Because I don't care if I don't know how to eat with chopsticks.
SH: Don't you want to impress people with your multiculturalism?*
Me: In this country, we eat with a fork.
SH: But you should use chopsticks to show how sophisticated you are.
Me: Too much trouble. Plus, you should know me well enough by now to know that I don't care what other people think.
SH: You should!
Me: Nope. I'm pretty secure that way.
* Note that I speak Spanish fluently and French enough to get by. I have lived in three foreign countries and traveled through about two dozen. Note also that I think that manual dexterity has nothing to do with sophistication.
