How Do You Eat Spaghetti?

I have absolutely no problem... just hunch my face down close so my
lips are about an inch from the mound, hook a few strands with my fork
and ease them to my mouth. Then I twirl them around my tongue while
sucking and gripping with my lips, and ever so often as I'm coming to
an end I hook a few more strands with my fork and push them to my lips
so I don't lose my rhythm. Then continue the tongue twirling-lip
suctioning process non-stop faster and faster until the 'skitti cums to
an end with a big slurp. Really, that's how I do 'sketti in private.
I don't do 'sketti very often in public, folks don't seem to appreciate
my technique, especially the audio. At restaurants I prefer shells,
ravioli, tortellini, like that.

Twirl almost all long Pasta - the real "trick" is knowing just how many strands
to put between the tines.

Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

I remember the spaghetti folded in half so that they looked like giant U's,
but no box we bought was as long as you describe -- perhaps 12" at most so
the spaghetti that finally made it into the pot unbroken would have been at
most 24" long. Your brand may well have been different.

I twirl it against the plate - spoons are for sissies.

There are two things I NEVER order in a restaurant:
spaghetti of any kind and chicken with bones in it.

Jeeze, Bob... keep it to 3-4 strands! Plunging your fork into the
middle of the spaghetti and twirling will always end up in a tennis
ball sized mass.

That's why Mom always broke the spaghetti in half.

I fork-twirl into the spaghetti on the plate, then when I have enough, I
stab a piece of meatball onto the end. That's a bite!!! :)

Well, with chopsticks, of course. What's all this spoon and fork nonsense?
After all, where did the Italians get all these pasta notions?
Correct---China.

Enlace a couple of strands in the fork tines and twirl just about the
plate. I've never seen 6' spagetti. My Mom used to break it in half
so it was impossible to eat neatly.

Sorry, I'm a chopper but sometimes a twiller. I tend to chop when
eating out and don't want to get my clothes dirty. DH, otoh, is always
a twiller and slurper suck the spaghetti up. If I tried that, it would
be everywhere but my mouth!

I do the twirl against the spoon thing as well.

If I have to twirl against the plate, I tend to pull a couple of strands
away from the rest and twirl. Less chance of getting it mixed up with more
strands than can be easily managed.

I only eat it in a non-public setting!

Oh, I neglected to mention that I put the fork at the EDGE of the mound of
spaghetti. Plunging it into the middle and twirling will result in a ball
somewhere between a grapefruit and a cantaloupe in size.
