Grandpa taught us that good manners are very important. So today I said “good morning” to the first ant I saw. There were 600 more of them in line. I stood there all day. (from Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin)
This is a great little book that left me chuckling. I hope you’ll pick it up and enjoy it if you come across it. I have no deep thoughts on the subject of manners, but they are very important and increasingly rare. Recently I witnessed a young man cutting in line at the sno-cone stand in front of my 8-month pregnant sister on a 98degree day! I honestly couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. I’m not saying you should have to greet 600 ants in a row, but come on! You can let a pregnant woman in front of you for a sno-cone….or a bathroom.
