A different sort of water pick?
Blog Guy, I know you are an expert on other cultures. A couple from India has moved in next door to us, and I’d like to invite them over for a drink. Any tips for me?
No, just make them feel really welcome and you’ll be fine. Oh, and naturally, break out your best nose cans for the occasion.
Please, you DO know that Indians drink through their noses, right? Oh my gosh, what a cultural faux pas if you had offered them drinks in GLASSES! Look at these photos taken at a nice bar in Punjab, and learn from them.
But… But… I’m not sure our nose cans are fine enough! I’ll go online and order some better ones…. I’m SO thankful I checked with you!
We plan to offer guacamole dip and Doritos chips with the drinks. That’s okay, isn’t it?
Of course, but be sure to serve them in your best ear funnels.
Ear funnels? Um….
