When I first moved to Texas, my friend Jo made it very clear to me on more than one occasion that my lazy west coast manners weren't going to cut here. I've consistently made every effort to live up to that expectation.
But I have to say, Texas has not lived up to it.
The folks back home would be shocked how often not one single healthy able bodied person will offer their seat on the bus to the obviously pregnant Kimberly Rae. Their jaws would fall to the floor at the complete and utter lack of this most basic act of etiquette, not to mention decency.
