What do you mean, “No chopsticks”?

This is Taiwan, for crying out loud. But there were no chopsticks in the school at lunch. How can there not be any chopsticks? China just instituted a tax on disposable wooden chopsticks to help protect what little forests they have left. That’s how many disposable wooden chopsticks they have – enough to affect their environmental policies! But there were no chopsticks here at lunch. I had to eat with a fork for the first time in months. I didn’t like it. Chopsticks are fun; you’re allowed to slurp. Good thing we’ve been stockpiling them at home. Bring on the tax! I’m ready to cash in on the disposable chopsticks black market.
