no elbows on the table and other things like that

The other day I learned a bit about table etiquette (the old things you know—with soup spoon away from you, sit up straight always, never lean down to your food instead bring your food up to your mouth, no elbows on the table–duh! bread to your left–drink to your right, napkin in your lap....those sorts of things).

At dinner time Jas and I decided to practice our manners............

I'll just say that our fancy pants dinner of grilled cheese and tomato soup ended in both of us speaking with British accents, two backaches, three counts of pepper in teeth and a big drip of soup right down the front of my shirt.

"Betta luck next time yeh jolly ol chap!"

I love this and you two. Did you ever have etiquette dinners when you were in mutual? I swear they always end in disaster, somehow.
