In Which Ella Realizes That Eating With Your Hands Over Your Ears Is Not an Option

I was at the diner a few weeks back when I noticed a disturbing trend: a startling large number of people were eating with their mouths open and smacking their lips. It’s disgusting. Really, really disgusting. And unlike most things that I hate, I’m not able to avoid it. I can’t mysteriously go missing at mealtimes or leave if someone who does it sits down at the table. Listening to people eat like that is just a fact of life, so I’m working on accepting that, one agonizing meal at a time.

* If anyone is curious, navigating and posting with WordPress on an iPhone is surprisingly simple and very fun.

**I don’t think I ever have, but if I don’t keep my mouth closed while I’m eating in front of you, please yell at me for it.

    • It’s not so much that they’re being rude, it’s just that they’re probably unaware they’re doing it. It’s sort of like when someone sneezes and doesn’t cover their nose and mouth because they didn’t know it was coming.

      At etiquette school and at home, eating with your mouth closed was drilled into me. And while I know that other people never got that, it still doesn’t take away how impossibly annoying and gross it is.
