On the way for a walk with Jenny at Crown Hill Lake Park, I had the happy idea to have lunch afterwards at the nearby Empress Sea Food Restaurant, site of our annual Jewish Christmas chowfest. Darling Husband, the Boy Wonder and I worked up quite an appetite during our trip around the lake, which we sated with many plates of dim sum.

Best of all, I discovered that I could use chopsticks again! The dexterity in my right hand has improved despite its remaining partially numb. I didn't drop one morsel of food, though I tucked my napkin into my neckline just in case.

Funny thing: the all-Chinese staff ate their lunch with forks and spoons. We assumed it was to not waste the one-use chopsticks; they rolled back the tablecloth too.
