While it’s okay to dislike tics or habits your partner may have, at a certain point you have to acknowledge that people are a package deal and stop hassling them about those things.
While both can be a great source of inspiration, don’t expect sex to look like either porn movies or romance novels. That way disappointment lies.
Stationery should never, under any circumstances, be scented.
Hey guys, sorry Tips From Pip was out of commission for a week! Things have just been hectic these days, as we approach Fringe. But now we’re back on track, and looking forward to giving common sense advice every day.
If you press your index finger between your eyebrows right above your nose, it will stop you from sneezing.
Kathryn Westoll told me this today at the Fringe Festival Office, because I sneeze a lot there.
When dining with a companion at a restaurant, it is polite to wait until both parties have been served to begin eating. If the diner who has yet to be served asks that you proceed, however, you are well within the bounds of good manners to begin eating rather than letting your meal spoil.
You may also stick to your guns and insist on waiting if you want to, but ask yourself this: is it better manners to graciously bow to your friend’s wishes, or to start bickering about who eats when?
If you have trouble getting going in the morning, try making your bed as soon as you get out of it. It makes getting back into it seem less feasible, and also creates an inviting space for you to return to at the end of the day. Also, a made bed makes any bedroom look instantly tidier, in the event that Mom should unexpected pop by for a visit.
Personally, I’m of the opinion that when I leave my bed unmade, I may as well send out an invitation for chaos and entropy to enter my life. Overdramatic? Maybe. True? Absolutely.
When you invite many couples to a dinner party, it is most effective if you choose to seat the members of each couple apart from each other. This encourages conversation and mingling, and dissuades everyone from falling into easy patterns.
This Tip comes courtesy of the delightful dinner party I attended tonight. C., you are a delightful host. And M., as always, thanks for being such a fabulous date.
