Monday Manners for 9/07/09

"Good manners: The noise you don't make when you're eating soup."
~Bennett Cerf
Today's manner is for Mo!

Elbows on the table: yes or no? According to Emily Post and the Modern Manners Guy, elbows should not be on the table while eating. However, elbows are alright during conversations between courses and after the meal.

I think I need a logo or something for Monday Manners. Hmm...

  1. As a child, I was taught no elbows on table while eating, but it was ok afterwards during conversation.

    I still do my best to keep my elbows off the table during dinner. :) The good manners I was taught as a child have really stuck with me (probably because they were modeled so well by my father and grandparents).
