Hi, Fictioneers! I have been gone a few weeks learning how to write movie scripts and lived to tell about it. It was a great experience, something I’m hoping to repeat one of these days.
Now, concerning this story: not everybody in the world knows everything, even when you’d think you’d expect them to. Such is the case of this nice, young, but inexperienced man and his girlfriend, Noriko.
Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, head of the wait-staff, will be hosting you this evening.
Marie Gail Stratford has plated a most wonderful photo prompt. Thank-you, Marie Gail.
I felt like a fool when we entered the restaurant. Noriko would no doubt have to help me learn how to eat.
“Noriko, I have been in many countries, traveled all over and I just don’t know how to use these utensils.”
Her dainty, soft and tiny porcelain hands took mine. “First, you take the thumb and hold it this way. Now, you use the two fingers thusly. There. See how easy?”
The waiter approached. “Orders, folks?”
“A KC strip, please. Akioshi?”
“The same, please.” I looked at her. “In appreciation for the lesson on how to hold a fork.”
