You're right, you know. I remember Andrea Jaeger, the tennis player, is really short. And Chuck Yeager, the test pilot and flying fool, is vertically challenged as well (at least when he's on the ground).

And she is a Jaeger who knows how to return a volley.

andy , you sure you aren't a bit Australian, for a North American I have noticed a bit of a sardonic sense of humour not often encountered in the North American..

Well, I've got several Aussie chinas, but no blood ties, Cardinal. Maybe it's a "colonial" trait linking denizens of the two great Dominions?

What's a "knife and fork"?

But somewhat seriously... it will vary according to what I'm eating whether I cut up first and then just use the fork after laying the knife aside, or use the fork and knife in combination (fork in left hand) but I'll never hold the knife like a pen while writing that I noticed in London and Ireland while on holiday there in 1977 as a teenager.

Maybe you can have as casus belli for some of the hostilities in Pangaea an argument over decorum on the use of cutlery?

I don't think I have ever eaten a meal sitting down at the table without holding both knife and fork unless it is soup or cereal..
