    F that. I hate using forks; those suckers make eating a lot harder. I'd rather choose to pick up my 12oz steak with chopsticks or using my hands. And don't get me started on how hard it is to pick up stuff with a fork when there are tiny pieces of stuff or things that go flat, like salad leaves. How the heck do you pick up small leftover items on your plate too?

    • I use my knife to push the smaller bits onto my fork. I've never managed to get chopsticks coordinated enough to eat with. If I have chopsticks and no fork, I just stare sadly at my plate until someone takes pity on me and gives me a fork.

        Whatever happened to the finger-food rule? If people don't provide suitable cultery, ANYTHING becomes finger-food. No spoon for soup? Sip out the bowl. No fork for rice? Take pinchfuls. Can't use chopsticks on sushi? Finger-and-thumb. No knife for steak? Picking it up and biting it carefully is actually MUCH tidier than stabbing it with a fork and raising it to your mouth.

        I'm terrible.

          • Monster noises while eating meat off the bone is mandatory too.
            Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

              • Is this a CW moment? Hard to know what to call it. My 91-year old friend (diabetic, high cholesterol, never had a heart attack or angina) is on a statin, and just received a warm invitation in the mail to join a medical trial for a new cholesterol-lowering drug. No, she wasn't interested. But seriously, do they regularly invite people her age to join drug trials??

                • I had someone at the grocery store offer me the Sunday paper for the coupons, for a delivery fee. I told them "unless coupons for fresh meat and veggies start getting coupons, I don't use coupons. Matter of fact, I don't read the paper. I get my news online and check my circulars at store websites." The guy looked gobsmacked.
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  • My supervisor who is a breast cancer survivor watched me warm up my lunch in a plastic container one day. She told me she had read a book about beating cancer and one of the recommendations was to avoid heating in plastic containers because they get slices and leak the chemicals in your food. I know this and was a little embarrassed at having done so, which I said to her. But then I looked at the weight watchers microwave meal she was eating all warmed up in its nice little black plastic container. I couldn't help but ask about that. "Oh it is fine. These don't have holes or rips in them.", she says. Never mind all the chemicals that are in the food itself! Facepalm.

                      • The other day I watched a pair of apparently healthy looking little girls obviously coming from a dance class, approximately 6 and 7 years old, request "lite" vanilla ice cream.
                        Their brother's wanted some regular fat flavor with stuff in it.
                        The mother purchased separate containers for the boys and girls. Lite for girls, regular for boys... the girls were praised.

                        *sigh*

                        I made a comment on how sad that was and my husband said "Well, they don't really know the difference. "
                        I said, "No, they DO, that is the problem..."

                        • Cori that is just sad. I hate to think of girls that young doing that, and the mother letting them! That should have been a "teachable" moment where the necessity of fat was explained. Kids need fat for brain development.

                            Most parents are programmed (just like we were) to behave like fat is the devil. Unfortunately they are not aware and lack the inspiration to actually find out the truth.
                            Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

                              Im more irritated by the double-standards for the two genders of the kids. I mean, 99% chance the parents believe that fat is fattening, so by encouraging their daughters to get the "non-fattening" food and letting the boys get the "fattening" stuff, theyre basically reinforcing BS gender-biased cultural body messages that women need to always be skinny and always micromanage their food to be so, etc etc etc.

                                Yup.... it's pretty obvious here that men overeat because they are hungry or clueless. I don't think I ever saw a man post "guilt" over an inability to not give up on fruit, or talking about how they deal with a bad day with sugar. Women end up with this whole burden of "she who can follow the hardest diet and make the most dietary sacrifices wins". What you eat (or don't) somehow defines part of your worth. Those girls are being indoctrinated into the world of an inability to enjoy food. Very sad.
