Food Etiquettion


My sister used to eat all the food on her plate systematically clockwise.

She’d eat all the potatoes, then the sausages, then the peas, …

It drove my mother crazy.

I started eating all my food systematically counterclockwise
… just to bother my sister.

I don’t know if that drove my mother crazy as well,
but our mother stopped making dessert for some reason.


note: I have no table manners … when I’m eating a burger while walking.

double note: if people are feeding off of you … you must have good table mannerisms.

triple note: I’m C’est la vie about French food, Que Sera, Sera about Spanish food,  … (come on! I know you can add to this list)

quadruple note: Fast Food is okay, but Faster Food would be an improvement … maybe.


what I’m listening to now #26: myself rambling internally.

  1. Interesting idea, eating your food clockwise (or in your case, counter-clockwise). I tried it with soup, but that didn’t work very well.

  2. My kids are the same way – although not clockwise – but they only eat one thing at a time. Me, I don’t care, I’d throw it all in a blender.

  3. I’m bshdcsbsc jbbcc hcuecc bwiwnx about alien food.

    Oh look at the time I have to go to work now Bye

  4. I might try eating my food from the centre out. Could be tricky with soup though…

    Now I’m going to work…

  5. Thanks for all the comments!

    Donald Diddams: soups tricky.

    writerdood: I think my sister actually ate one thing at a time, but not counterclockwise or clockwise … but that’s not as visual, so I’ve used my poetic license … or what ever they gave me that says I can drive cars on the road.

    Tony: alien food is probably more foreign than the foreignest food on this planet.
