After judo class

Despite our best efforts Xavier would much rather eat his food with his fingers. However I have to admit that I have a sneaking envy of his pleasure. Having been made to use cutlery for as long as I can remember, I know that deep down that those of us who’d rather have their food speared onto the end of a piece of metal are missing out on one of life’s sensual pleasures. Uh-oh those last two words are going to attract a whole new class of visitors to this blog!

Eating without utensils is an appealing thought -- at least your wee rant has made it sound appealing. But at a community supper one eve, there was a child about 3 years old eating that way. When the jello arrived he had a complete breakdown and could not be consoled. He refused a spoon, continued to believe his hands were adequate, and ended up in a sad state and sorely disappointed.

Roberta, it's talking to indian friends who say how delicious food is eaten with the fingers which makes me realise what I'm missing - but then jelly isn't a traditional indian dish.
I tracked back and you have some great work Larry.
