The rad pad:
The Reitz Rents and the Esther P's exchanged many smiles and nods and "Hello's" and "Ni hao's" and "Xiexie's" and that was actually about the extent of their conversations. On this particular occasion, Dad forgot his fork and was forced to struggle with chopsticks. Esther's family kept watching him, staring, trying to comprehend how someone couldn't effortlessly pick up a single grain of rice. I asked them all to try using chopsticks with their left hand.
After they fumbled around and dropped food all over the place for a minute, I explained that's what it's like for people who don't use chopsticks everyday.
