…or, too old to make a difference. Let’s take the adventurous spirit of youth and the lessons learned of an older generation that can be shared with each other. What better place to start than with food and teaching children how to hold their knife and fork, or how to set the table and why it is important. (Why? Because someday they’ll go on a job interview and having good dining skills will set them apart from other candidates.)
Since today is the day after Thanksgiving, make finger sandwiches with leftover turkey. That turkey will just taste better when you use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the crustless bread. Pull out those rarely used, but beautiful China teacups and then have a “device free” dining experience. Those charming children can tell you about their “talents” and bring you up to speed about social media. Will you both remember the shared experience of time well spent together? We think so.
