Lately I’ve become very interested in etiquette. I am trying to learn new manners every day. With this goal in mind, I went to the library yesterday and checked out a 709-page book on the subject. I’ve already read 110 pages. Here are three lessons that I learned for today.
1. “Walk down the street with a deliberately pleasant expression on your face (not a suffering frown …)” >:
2. “A smiling face, symptomatic of an upbeat personality, is like the flame that fascinates and draws the moths.”
3. “Act fascinated by the new people you meet, even if they look very boring indeed.”
