*I had a very intriguing childhood. My mother, being an Anglophile, had me conduct myself at the table as did they. When eating cereal I had to adopt the inverted spoon technique just as they also worked their fork. Thus, when consuming the bowl it took several hours when the grain was uniform, and, much longer if flaked. Also, there was no drinking of the milk. To this day, I take comfort in the fact that the crescent moon waxes right to left and not from the top down (don’t need the visual). I’ve since converted to the toaster where one’s knife can go either way. We all have our clean and humorous stories.
