Friday, July 4

You know your guests are truly relaxed when...

You know your guest is truly relaxed, when they can sit & pick their ear, & examine the pickings, with ease, & that you have succeeded as a hostess, in making them feel truly at ease, & at home.

Or, if, they can divulge the answers to questions you have long wished to enquire about, but have refrained from the asking. If they volunteer this information, you know they must trust you. You hide your glee, along with your further dismay, as you are intrigued by the information divulged. As opposed the information not yet divulged, which makes said info already divulged, somewhat irrelevant.

My Gosh Life can get very complicated! Perhaps the Captian Klink, is the best judge... I Know Nothing!

We all 'know nothing'. Do we not!

I must say if they picked their ears while visiting me they wouldn't be back again regardless of their interesting details! Yuck! :)

Tanya Brown said...

Well said!

One of my relatives has a habit of blowing his nose, then opening the kleenex and pensively inspecting its contents. I wish he felt a little less comfortable around me.

I think "knowing nothing" is the way to go.

It was Schultz! Sergeant Schultz! Although, I know nothing, either...
(ewww ear picking!)

meggie said...

Kellie, I must say I looked with amused surprise as he picked.
He lives alone, so I suppose he forgot where he was.
Tanya, I know that habit of which you speak. Horrible.
Mike, Yes knowing nothing is very safe!
Rhubarbwhine, I knew I was wrong, & I even checked with Gom who assured me it was Klink!

Yep, that person was pretty relaxed or else that ear was bothering him too much..LOL I prefer the ear picking to the kleenex looking...LOL

I always say the less I know the better off I am.. I am out of the loop and glad to be out..LOL

Maggie May said...

Very relaxed, I would say! At least he didn't cut his toe nails!

peppermintpatcher said...

At least he didn't wipe it on the tablecloth...

(Gross, I know, but you opened the door and I just took it one step further)

Lucy said...

Do you remember 'The Young Ones' when they were broke at the end of term and Vivian said 'I'm so hungry I could eat my own ear-wax!' then aside 'and we all no how nasty that tastes eh kids?'

So who was this confiding and rather distasteful guest?

Rosie said...

I think I know why he lives alone...

Laughing at Rosy. You are a very tolerant and good friend!

Thimbleanna said...

You're so funny Meggie! Not sure whether I should congratulate you on your fabulous hosting skills or not LOL!

Ragged Roses said...

Wow! Although people who live alone really do seem to forget simple things like picking their ears in public being bad...

I spend a few month a year with a girl who burbs in front of me all the time... she lives alone otherwise!

Pauline said...

Haha Meggie!

I guess no matter how old we get, our bodily functions fascinate us...

My mother would have looked at the offending guest, made a point of discreetly (and sweetly) telling him where the "facilities" were located, and suggested that perhaps he might want to make further "investigations" in private.

But you leave us hanging - what tidbits did you learn? (Another human habit rears its ugly head lol)

The Sagittarian said...

Yuck. Isn't it fun having others in your house? Makes me wonder what "bad habits" I might be blissfully unaware that I have...

rhubarbwhine said...

meggie - you are tagged - and awarded!

Fairlie said...

In that case, Kevin Rudd must feel very relaxed during question time...:)
