Just to be clear, these are the guidelines from 1938. This was shared by a friend on facebook and it made me laugh. And oh how I have felt in need of a laugh.
Some gems include:
• Never look bored, even if you are
• Don't sit in awkward positions
• Don't be sentimental...men don't like tears
• Don't talk about clothes or describe your new gown to a man
So basically, according to these and other rules, a 1938 Deviled Megs would have blown it with a 1938 MVP.
