Haha you can buy training chopstick on places like JBox and Amazon. Honestly it took me years of using the jerryrigged version of training chopsticks as a kid to get it right. One day I was sitting and waiting for my chinese take out and I was holding onto the chopsticks in my hand and when I became bored enough I looked at the back and attempted to use them the way that they illustrated and it all fit into place. 
What I suggest is looking up directions, with visuals, or a video like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8mw8S…, and practicing. 
And don't forget, there are different ways to use chopsticks. Yours might not be conventional, but if it works for you then it works. And if you hold the chopsticks closer to the tip in the beginning you will have more control. I can hold them up near the tip or far back at the end with the same result anymore, but it took time to learn that.

It's hard to explain if you've never had it before. You should look in your local asian market or international market if you would like to try some. But beware they are kinda pricy

Oh that kinda sucks.

Well lets see, it doesn't really have much of a flavor, it has a lot of crunch because of the seeds though. It goes get a bit sweet when it's ripening though.

The whole thing is edible, including the waxy skin. It's very crunchy and very juicy, but again not a whole lot of flavor.

So...Dragon fruit...I had one of the vitamin water things with that flavor...it was horrible. How does the real fruit taste?

I don't drink vitamin water so I wouldn't know what that tasted like. Dragon fruit doesn't seem to have too much of a taste, but a lot of crunch.

It's not bad, it's not my favorite though. I think it would be a grow to like kind of thing. I have a bunch of things like that that I now love.

I've been buying a new brand and they're much deeper in color and shinier. They still taste good though!

I had to get mine at an international market. It was 5.99 a lb!
It's not the best thing in the world, it have little flavor, but it does get a bit sweet. I don't think I'll be spending 5.99 on a lb again though. I'm glad I tried it, but it's not worth that much to me at least

Yes, It's not bad, it's just not my favorite. I like it for itself, but not enough for 5.99 a lb...
