this is my cousin's son, Hagen. he's five and clearly hasn't grasped how to properly use chopsticks. i suppose at that age i didn't know how to either. in fact, i vividly remember my grandma telling me countless times to learn how to hold chopsticks in order to be a real Chinese. i mostly took this photo because i thought he looked cute trying to shovel the potsticker in his mouth but by the time i snapped the picture he had somehow picked it up....even with his hand all backwards. i wonder if my cousin is going to ever find out that i've exploited her child on the internet and, even more so, that i've mocked his chopstick skills.
