SO--an important part of my up-bringing was ALL about good manners. Momma would hear of no less--than proper etiquette. So I have been thinking lately-
IF a tree falls in the woods and there is no one there to hear it--does it make a sound?
IF I somehow--someway let a burp slip while at home alone---IS IT RUDE? After all there was no one there to hear it--No one was offended---No need for an excuse me--SO ?
