My grandmother instilled in me the knowledge of the socially correct behavior from the early twentieth century, of how to be above reproach.† I spent a lot of my college years trying to disregard that knowledge; it was out of step with the times and place.† There have been a few times in my life when that knowledge was useful, but most other times it is nothing more than a guilt trip. †Social mores have changed (for good or bad, I donít know), and I am struggling again with what I want versus what I believe are the highest expectations.
