Hosting

Dr. Seuss taught us about the right way to behave as well as the wrong. Todays Seuss-ism is about being a good Host and comes from Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose:

You couldn't say "Skat!" cause that wouldn't be right.
You couldn't shout "Scram!" cause that isn't polite.
A host has to put up with all kinds of pests,
For a host, above all, must be nice to his guests.
So you'd try hard to smile, and you'd try to look sweet
And you'd go right on looking for moose-moss to eat.

Being a gracious host is a lot of hard work especially when you have pests for guests... Poor Thidwick!

Being a good host is important, it's about manners!
