This week's etiquette lesson comes to us from the chapter entitled:
Let's join our lesson, already in progress...
My husband and I are invited to an out-of-town wedding, but he will be unable to go. Would it be correct for my son, a college freshman in school near the city where the wedding will take place, to meet me and go as my escort? -Mrs. W.J.M., Berwyn, Illinois
-Geez Amy, don't hurt yourself giving out all this advice.
-I bet it took this lady 3 days to write this letter, just to have Amy answer in about 15 seconds.
-I wonder how excited her son was to leave his first college experience for a weekend of wedding fun with his mom and her friends.
And that concludes another lesson in "Everyday Etiquette". Please tune in next week when we will learn what to do when we receive dreaded printed instead of handwritten thank you card. dum dum DUM!
