I don't know, I sometimes like my elbows on the table, where and when is this not appropriate?

Probably a great book, but what are your thoughts on it? I don't really think it is a big deal, but if you were clumsy you could get food on your shirt sleaves.  Shocked

You're right, that's probably beyond your reading level, anyway.

Well, what do I think about elbows on the table??   MMmmmmmm.........well, I don't really care that much, if your backbone's too weak to hold you up, go for it.............just keep your elbows outta my soup!!!!.......and no slobbering on the table cloth.

Oh you bring up yet another topic, what's with the table cloths anyway?

Are they like this big napkin? Conveniently placed on the table for all to use?

If it is just to keep the dishes from clankin on the table, why not buy a wood table? did you ever hook a table cloth when wiping your hands on you pants?

Well, table cloths are placed on tables for one (or possibly more) of several reasons:

*It makes an attractive background for table settings.........when you're trying to make things look nice for a special occasion.

*It can protect an antique/delicate finished table that could lose value if damaged by careless individuals (who shall remain nameless at this point)

*It can cover up previous damage done by careless individuals (who shall also remain nameless at this point)


And, in answer to your question.........NO they are NOT just big napkins.*shakes head in wonder*...
.....your napkin is normally placed on the side of your plate, just under your flatware......try using the napkin instead of your pants to wipe your hands....... Roll Eyes

So when you say flateware, do you mean those pokey things, scoopy things and sharp things?



Now we have pants and shirt sleaves. Don't see the need for a napkin (well unless food is horrible)  Shocked

Did you ever eat mashed potatos and gravy without those "flatwares"?

As far as table cloths, if everybody ate out of their own bowl on the floor you wouldn't need to worry right?
