The b’s and d’s of dining etiquette

You’re at a wedding. Circle table. Bread’s on one side, wine’s on the other. Your neighbour is showing signs of H1N1, then sips from what you thought was your wine glass. It’s all so stressful.

Here’s a simple trick to keep everyone in line. Make the OK sign with thumb and forefinger. The right hand becomes a ‘d’ for drink, your left a ‘b’ for bread. As long as you can read, you’ll never be confused again.

Acknowledgments go to Peter and Allison for getting married. Their dinner at the AGO provided the perfect table setting to illustrate this point. And to Jamie for modeling and dining etiquette expertise.
