My son Phen, hubby Eric, and I stopped at the Chinese Buffet for dinner tonight. It was almost hysterical how dorky I was trying to figure out how to eat crab legs.
I know, I know... you pro crab eaters can laugh it up.
Poor things were being mutilated. Pieces of crab meat flying all over the place as I tried one way, then another. During the mayhem, I handed a leg to my son and asked, "can you show me". He tried breaking, twisting.. and then was quiet for a minute. Curious I looked up from my own destruction. Out of the silence, "Mom? Here, look." He broke it with ease, pulled the meat out perfectly and smiled.
"How did you figure that out?", I asked.
With a cheesy grin and a lot of tact, he pointed to the 8 yr old boy next table over...successfully eating his crab legs with perfect precision and joy.
Never to old to learn, Never to young to teach.
