Dining Etiquette For Dummies

I'm pretty excited about Thanksgiving coming up. The family! The fun! The food!

**stomach growls**

Okay, right now I'm especially excited about the food, because I'm hungry; an entire box of Pop Tarts isn't as filling as you'd think. I'm craving that turkey, the cranberry sauce, some stuffing - even the green bean casserole. The only downside to holiday dinners is the possibility of getting stuck next to someone who doesn't know how to behave at the table (not in my family, of course - ahem - but I'm sure that's a legitimate problem somewhere out there... cough cough).

So, in case you or someone you know needs a little refresher course on how to mind manners during the main course this holiday season, I made a fancy list of common dining situations and how to handle them - plus, how you definitely should not handle them. Take a look and let me know what I forgot! **chews Pop Tart with mouth open**

Nothing interfered with this one, Lady. It's pure comic gold. (And the frankincense and the myrrh.)

I'm just relieved "Scraping food from plate directly into mouth" made the cut. I now feel validated and un-alone.

I couldn't rule it out completely - it isn't my fault the last few kernels of corn are impossible to stab with a fork!

I'll gratefully take them all! And trade them for a new iPhone case. ;)

You're exempt from all rules, fishducky - but ONLY YOU. :)
