Things I’ve learned from the women in my family:
-White wine is for chicken, fish, and sometimes pork
-Cocktail hour is at six, sometimes five.
-Boston has cocktail hour all day long
-Bloody mary is for Sunday morning
-Ladies DO NOT smoke on the street
-Pick up a tea pot with your right hand and the tea cup with your left… always at the same time
-walk slowly into a room
-always sip tea, never gulp. First sip is for grattitude. Second sip is for taste. Third sip is for friendship, always leave just a little in the cup.
-shoulders must be balanced with elbows for good posture
-always wear a hat to the horse races
-Corsets ruin the figure
-Never confuse yellow diamonds with topaz
-Never talk about yourself on the first date
– silps are sexy, garters are not
– Men should always come to the door on a date, never ever honk.
