Emily Post, I Am Sorry
Here at Chez Things we have a lot of little girls, soon to be one more, that we are trying to raise with a balance of a good sense of humor and the ability to act like well-mannered young ladies. Tonight during supper, as I was taking a drink, my 9 year old, Thing 1, leaned to the side and let fly a big loud tooooooooooot, something very much frowned upon at the dinner table. Appalled, I sputtered out "Thing 1, what do you say!" and she, without missing a beat, said with a smile "ta-da!"
