ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ETIQUETTE AND GENTLEMAN SHIP
By Maximillien de Lafayette
THE DOS AND
DON'TS IN DINING WITH A JEWISH PRINCESS.
cher ami, whether you are a Jew or a gentile, what would you offer a Jewish
Secretary of Defense of France, the majestic Monica Crowley, the walking
gossips encyclopedia, Joan Rivers, the outrageous Anna Nicole Smith, a
bankrupt woman who teaches creative financing and financial success at NYU
or a humble Filipina woman who cleans your house, if you ask them out? What
would you offer them to drink, if you go on a date with any of them?
Champagne, a blessed water by your parish priest, a frozen Martini, a
Rolling Rock, a Calvados, a Petrus, an Armagnac, a
Sancerres or a Hershey's syrup?
Shame on you if you do not choose Champagne. Really, it does not make any
difference, nor it does alter the refined manners protocol, and the way you
treat a lady, whether you go out with a woman of a privileged status or a
woman who drives a truck four by four with an expired license plate. All
women are ladies and deserve the ultimate respect and your "savoir faire".
If you do not agree, get a life, coconut head. You treat people well, not
because they are important, but because good manners and gentleman-ship are
important to you. It would be impossible to cover all the territories of
dating etiquette in one single article. So, we will talk about the most
important things -the very very basic- a man should take into consideration,
while dining with a Jewish woman, regardless whether he is in the company of
sweet Rachel, shy Esther or barracuda Gloria.
