Well the Mrs has headed to the big(er) city to have her kidney stone blasted to death by some sort of cosmic death ray......so I am playing Mr. Mom.

Anyway I whipped up a batch of Spaghetti sauce overnight ( its always better if you let it simmer overnight) and I am just boiling the noodles for the little critters ( they seem to be starving)

Anyway as I set the table ( without spoons) I got to thinking????

How many A15ers are Spinners or Cutters of this fine food.

Personally I abhore the slurper variety...

Oh Yes with the Mrs gone I am going over the bend hence such an inane question....

OK I admit it..I cut.

I spin with a fork on a spoon.  I then remove the fork and put the spoon with pasta in my yacko and eat the pasta.

<---spin and slurp

I spin it with the fork, no spoon involved.  Then I quietly slurp the pieces that dangle over the sides of the fork.  If I'm eating Lo Mein with chop sticks, I employ an entirely different technique.

I am also a proud Cutter!

Spinning sounds too preppy to me!  "Would you like a spot of Tea?"[;D]

Spinner here, although I've eaten spaghetti with chopsticks, and it works pretty well. Slurping IS involved, I don't mind. In fact, I'd have to say that when you get the hang of chopsticks, they are a better eating implement than a fork. They DO NOT work well with fried eggs-I've tried. But that's about the only thing I can think of that's difficult with chopsticks.

You all are a bunch of [b]heathens[/b]!!!  [:D]

Grab yourself a pasta spoon (not just any regular spoon) in one hand and a fork in the other.  With the fork, grab some spaghetti between the tines and direct them to the bowl of the spoon.  Twirl until no noodles are hanging off (you don't wanna slurp, do you?).  Move fork towards mouth.  Open mouth and insert fork.  Eat spaghetti.

How hard is that, guys?  C'mon...

Cut pasta? Don't even speak of such things. No cutters are welcome in my house!! Off with your heads [chainsawkill]

I have got to cut.
Link Posted: 5/22/2002 4:08:02 PM EDT
Well I must be a heathen because I cut to bite size pieces and enjoy. No mess no fuss.

I didn't know they had spaghetti in Kanada.

We invented Spaghetti!!!

I'm just a stupid redneck boy.  I'm not coordinated enough to "spin" it.  I have to cut it if I want to get it in my mouth.  I would never "slurp" it.  I hear that only boys from the Castro District in San Francisco would slurp it.

After hanging out with two native Sicilians for about five years, I find that the [s]Italian[/s] Sicilian way of eating spaghetti is the best way...and it involves spinning the fork around a spoon.

When in Rome....

When I was younger, my parents would encourage using chopsticks and slurping, although this would get quite messy.  Personally, I'd rather spin it all up and eat it in one big gulp.

Neither....I break it in 3 or 4 pieces before I cook it.
