If you've watched any tv lately, I'm sure you've come across the Honda commercial featuring Chuck Norris:
I somehow don't think Chuck has had many lessons in etiquette, but perhaps I'm guilty of stereotyping--maybe he would be perfectly capable of making polite conversation while sipping tea.
How are you in doing in the area of manners? There are guides to etiquette being published today--well-behaved people are always in fashion! One in our collection is Letitia Baldrige's New Manners for New Times: A Complete Guide to Etiquette [395 BAL].
Table Manners for Kids...Tots to Teens [FT 395 TAB] is one of several VHS tapes on teaching your kids how to behave; this one is found in the First Teachers Section of the Children's Room. We also have a set of books called First Facts: Manners [J 395.122 DEG] by Terri DeGezelle.
Once you've brushed up on your etiquette, you may want to practice your skills at a local tea shop. Check out listings here. Have fun and don't slurp!
