Sometimes, things are so obvious but we still don’t recognize them. People are a bit in shock after realizing that the tab at the top of chopsticks that we split in half when we break them apart actually has a purpose.
What tab? This tab!
That seemingly useless tab of wood is meant to be a rest for your chopsticks. Lay the chopsticks on the rest to keep your table AND the chopsticks clean. How did I not know this?
I have never completely gotten the hang of using chopsticks. I’m a little embarrassed to say that the dog in the video below eats off chopsticks more gracefully than I do.
Do you use chopsticks?
