oddities

odd thoughts pop into my mind and you're lucky enough to hear one!

A leaf blower's a strange invention, no? Basically, you're saying, "I'm not gonna clean up, I just don't want this mess here."

I know they're not nearly as weird as leaf blowers, but men's suits have been looking really, really strange to me lately.

Today in spanish I was thinking about my next ride and I just said "bananas have alot of potassium" out loud for no reason at all.

It was really weird, like my mouth decided on it's own it wanted to say something.

A while back I was at an etiquette dinner and I learned a lot of weird rules. My favorite was this- it's not polite to be the first one to start eating, even if everyone is at the table and already has their food. So the manners lady told us, "Never be the first one to eat." That's great and all, but what if everybody followed that rule? Nobody would ever eat.

So next time your wife or mom asks you if it would kill you to have some manners, you can tell her yes.

Is it true that Americans have this way of eating with a knife and fork whereby they cut the food up and then transfer the fork into the dominant hand and then use it to scoop the food up, rather than using the tines to 'stab' the food?

Is it considered impolite in America to have the tines pointing down towards the plate?

I have seen people doing the hand-switching-scooping thing.

I'm not sure if it's rude to point the tines of the fork towards the plate.

I usually just chop the stuff up with the side of my fork anyway. Or pick the whole thing up and take bites of it while I hold it front of my mouth.
