Etiquette Boss: Eat difficult foods correctly

Whole Fish: The fish should be laid on the plate with the head toward the left, whether the head is on or off. Separate the fish from head to tail on the flat side. Eat from one half first, then the other. Place the knife under the backbone at the top and lift on a separate plate. Cut the bottom in the same manner as the top and eat each section separately.

Lettuce: Lettuce should be dried before being placed on a plate as salad. Leaves should not have water droplets after being served. If the lettuce leaf is too large to fit into the mouth, fold with the fork and cut with the side of the fork. Ideally, lettuce should not be cut in the plate with a knife.

Baked Potatoes: Open the top of the baked potato and insert butter with a fork. Use the knife to cut the flesh into small pieces, but do not mash until the insides become mashed potatoes. Cut and eat with butter or other toppings. If you wish to eat the skin, cut into small pieces and eat with a knife and fork.

Anti-Aging Tips:

For soft, baby smooth skin: Mix equal parts honey and baking soda in a small bowl or in your hand. Apply to a slightly damp face or use while in the shower, rubbing in a circular direction. Let it sit for a few minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

Get rid of enlarged pores: If your pores are enlarged, try this remedy that reportedly works very well. Wash your face with Arm & Hammer baking soda. Rub in circular motions. Next, take some coconut oil and rub your face thoroughly for about 10 minutes. Rinse with very warm water. Do this twice per day for about three days. Your face should be super smooth with open pores no longer a problem.
