Whenever I am at home, I enter my own kingdom. Everything is so familiar and so common for me. I know every little detail about everything what I have- when I bought it or who gave it to me, all the memories connected with this or that thing. There are many things which I have at home and which mean very much to me, but some of them are particularly dear for me. Do you want to know about my favorite one?
Look- this is my pair of chopstick. Every time I take a look at my chopsticks, I smile because I remember the story about how I got them. Probably every person has a pair of chopstick nowadays. Everybody who likes any type of Asian cuisine is going to get a pair of chopstick for themselves. Anybody who saw it in my house would never pay attention to it. A pair of chopstick is not a Dell laptop of the latest model. It is just a common thing which is hidden in one of my shelves. People see my chopsticks only when we have a party and they are needed for the table. I have a few more pairs for the guests. However, I always take this very pair for myself. It means a lot to me.
Every now and then, I take my chopsticks out just to look at them. In my opinion, they are a masterpiece of some sense. It is unbelievable how skilful the person making them was. I have heard that it does not take very much time to make chopsticks, but this pair definitely took a while. They could not be made fast. That would have ruined their essence. They needed some deep thinking and creativity. They are not completely plain; there is some decoration on them. The decoration is not very large, but one can see that it is like a breath of fresh air. Most likely, the person making my chopsticks was planning to show everybody that even such a simple object can be unique and uncommon.
I particularly like my chopsticks because one of my best friends gave them to me. Some people do not treasure presents of their best friends enough but I always do. What can be more important in life than a gift from a person whom you treasure greatly and who will always be with you even if you are hundreds of miles apart? This pair of chopstick will always remind me of all the joys and sorrows which we shared with my best friend. Every time I take it out, I remember the sound of the rain under which we were walking in our childhood, the color of the rainbow which we saw in the sky after that rain. All of the happy memories which we had in the past come back to me. We have both grown up, and childhood will never come back. However, every time I take my chopsticks out, I feel like I am back into my world of childhood again. They are my connection with my past, with all the happiness which I had in it.
