Hope has this nice post with a list of table manners that she intends to concentrate on with her children.
After tonight's dinner-table debacle in which 4 out of 5 family members lost their appetites midway through one of our favorite meals, I feel compelled to add the following to Hope's list:
* Do not use your straw to chase chicken grease around on your plate.
* Do not load your straw with bits of chicken and use it as a blowgun.
YES, this really happened here tonight. It's going to be a long summer--I can just tell.
