1.Trying to Break a Plank With Your Head
Your grandchildren may have advanced far enough in martial arts — typically karate or tae kwon do — to pull this one off. But unless you’re sporting a black belt, you can avoid a concussion or worse by sticking to yoga
2.Boasting About Certain Things
It’s considered tasteless to convey excitement in public about the number of stamps in your passport, zeroes in your paycheck, capital letters that accompany your name (unless they’re H.R.H.), the number of people you could have married, the size of your acreage … or the size of your anything else.
3.Explaining Your Personal Role in Bringing Your Kids Up Right
