Thank you all so much for the tips especially about keeping water handy - I never imagined the rice would be that sticky.
Anyways, I ended up making it for him today and gave it to him about an hour later. haha I decided not to bother with fish though so it was just california rolls. I was kind of intimidated because I know he works at a fancy restaurant with a sushi bar and all but he seemed to like it. So thank you for the help. And EmilyFlew, making sushi definitely IS addictive.
