That Whole Chopstick Thing...

So far today I have been complimented on:
My ability to use the stereo to record something.
My ability to make photo copies.
My ability to speak english.

Compliments like this make me re-evaluate the whole, "You use chopsticks so well" thing. I tend to agree with the generally accepted, "its just a conversation starter thing." But then you get the utterly innane compliments (like the ones above), one after another, on a fine thursday morning (such as this) from people who are very definately not trying to make conversation, and I wonder: "Maybe they do think that I am really that dumb...." But, then I wonder: "Maybe I am that dumb."
