Dinner Party

Smile.

That’s all you need to do.

Just smile.

But not too wide

And not too false.

And nod.

Nod more than a little

But not too much.

Make eye contact.

But don’t stare

Gawp or glare.

Talk to them.

But please not in detail

Make pleasing little comments.

Elbows off the table,

Sit upright and proper,

Cutlery from the outside in,

Place the Napkin on lap,

And remember darling,

Smile.
