Some more Victorian Etiquette for you.  BEHAVIOR TO BE AVOIDED AT THE BALL. - A lady should not enter or cross the hall unattended - No gentleman should ever enter the ladies' dressing room at a ball - Never lead a lady in the ball by the hand; always offer the arm - A lady should not select a gentleman to hold her bouquet, fan, and gloves during the dance, unless he be her husband, escort, or a relative - Do not engage yourself for the last two or three dances; it may keep you too late - Neither married nor unmarried ladies should leave a ballroom unattended - A gentleman in waltzing should not encircle the waist of a lady until the dancing commences, and he should drop his arm when the music ceases - No gentleman should use his bare hand to press the waist of a lady in the waltz. If without gloves, he should carry a handkerchief in his hand.

Behavior to be avoided at the table. - Never open your mouth when chewing -Never make noises with the mouth or throat - Never leave the table with food in the mouth - Never tip back in your chair nor lounge upon the table -Never permit yourself to use gestures nor illustrations made with a knife or fork on the tablecloth -Never hold bones in your fingers while you eat from them - Never encourage a dog or cat to play with you at the table -Never explain at the table why certain foods do not agree with you - Never pick your teeth or put your hand in your mouth while eating - And by no means ever wipe your fingers on the tablecloth, nor clean them in your mouth. Use the napkin. LOL I'll be watching. LOL
