To Jill

Based on her comments, I fear Jill will begin to think I really believe what I write or worse, act on it. I would like to reassure her by letting her know that while I have the flu this week I am reading Miss Manner's Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior. Some favorite tidbits:

Dear Miss Manners: What do you consider a good conversation opener?
Gentle Reader: Almost anything except, "I've been on a wonderful journey of self-discovery lately, and I'd like to share it with you."

Dear Miss Manners: What is the proper way to eat potato chips?
Gentle Reader: With a knife and fork. A fruit knife and an oyster fork, to be specific. For pity's sake, what is this world coming to? Miss Manners doesn't mind explaining the finer points of gracious living, but feels that anyone you doesn't have the sense to pick up a potato chip and stuff it in his mouth probably should not be running around loose on the streets.

Dear Miss Manners: When is a Vase a Vahz?
Gentle Reader: When it is filled with Dah-zies.

Now that I have reassured her, I would like to thank Jill for introducing me to Google Reader which now has a place on my homepage.
