Today is National Chop Sticks Day. Chop Sticks are those skinny sticks you eat with. Rhinos are not good with these utensils, mostly because they don’t pick up enough on a single swipe. We are not Dainty Diners.
Today also seems a good time for YIR to salute Ms. Euphemia Amelia Nightingale Allen, who wrote the composition for piano popularly known as Chop Sticks. That was in 1877, when she was 16 years old. It was Ms. Allen’s first and last published work.
Few Rhinos excel at the piano, mostly because the keys are too narrow. There may be other limitations, but one is all it takes..
