The Chopsticks!

Copyright: Mary Gail Stratford
I was bored of staying alone in my little apartment. I
decided to go to the Chinese Restaurant down the street for dinner. My troubles
started when the waiter brought the noodles that I had ordered. I’d to eat with
chopsticks, not a fork and I was terrible at it. I’d already spilled a lot of
it on my dress and as I was trying to ensure that more food went into my mouth rather
than on my dress, I heard a familiar voice saying, “You still have trouble with
the chopsticks, don’t you?”It was him! My long lost love!

    Isn't that always the way? I want to know how the story ended!

  2. Well written Mich.
    I agree with Cindy, you need to write another post on this. 🙂

  3. I like how you mixed two stories here- the chopstick difficulty and the love life 😉

    I have to say my chop stick abilities have not improved with age 🙁

  5. What a delightful story – even if she is wearing the menu. Very clever and that's when people run into someone they would rather impress. Poor girl, I hope she gets a second chance at love with "him." Great story! Nan 🙂

    What a fun story! I could relate about the chopsticks. I liked the ending line where the long lost love shows up. So then what happened?

  7. Dear Reema,

    Relationships and chopsticks can both be difficult. Nice one.

    Reema, My first comment disappeared, so here's a second one: Good and well-written story. If he loves her, a little spilled food won't matter. 🙂 —Susan

  9. Nice read Reema.:) Are the two characters now together?

    Reema this is such a funny story, written only in 55 words, but conveys so many emotions.
