dinner party rules from Town and Country

(I'm almost finished cleaning up from last night's dinner.  It's always amazing to me, no matter how informal a meal might be,  there is never less mess.)

In the meantime...

The ever elegant, Town and Country Magazine has recently shared a "what not to say" list for dinner parties... It's quite comical, and unfortunately I've overheard more than one of these faux pas at a party.

1.) "I'm on a cleanse."
2.) "The doctor says I'm not contagious."
3.) "That was a great mugshot of your husband on the news."
4.) "How could anyone vote for that jerk?"
5.) "It's amazing what they can do with tummy tucks, isn't it?"
6.) "I didn't know you cooked!"
7.) "How was rehab?"
8.) "So are you wife number two, or is it three?"
9.) "I have to leave right after the appetizers."
10.) "Did you just come from the stables?"
11.) "I'm not smoking, it's electronic."
12.) "I think you'd really like this book I'm reading, it's called Wheat Belly.
13.) "I saw your ex's wedding announcement in this month's issue of Town & Country."
