Dinner parties, especially the formal ones, can be a really tricky thing. You have to keep the conversation going, pick your topics carefully, mind your manners and think about the way you eat your food while you’re eating it.

I’m not an easy one to gross out. In fact, I’ve ate a pizza and watched uncensored liposuction on TV once. However, a lot of people don’t prefer talking about gross stuff while eating. Plus, it’s not polite or nice, anyways. So, definitely don’t mention you’ve stayed up all night chasing a rat and avoid other potentially sickening topics. Now, one more thing about this rule – don’t force topics, talk about anything too much and brag excessively (even if you have darn good reasons to). Some even claims is rude to talk about politics but hey, that’s always a popular topic and it sure beats the hell out of nice-weather talks.
