Dinner jacket


"My friend doesn't know the proper way to eat soup. I want you to go out to lunch with us so you can see how he eats soup and then tell me what you think."

Okay, I said, but only because he was buying.

We sat in a booth. Him to my right, the friend across from us. They both ordered the soup.

The friend ate his soup slightly leaning forward, head slightly tipping down, shoveling (for lack of a better word) the spoon towards his mouth. I could see how this method was not exactly polite soup eating etiquette, but quite effective.

He, on the other hand, obviously went to soup eating school. He sat straight up, looked ahead, dipped his spoon into the bowl away from him, lifted his spoon straight up, then making an upside down L brought it to his mouth. Unfortunately, most of the soup missed his mouth and went down his chin and landed on his tie.

I ordered the salad because I am very, very, very smart.
