So maybe it was a posture thing or maybe something else had changed about how I eat that I'm just not aware of. But, yes, I used to be a messy eater even when eating out with a napkin. Now, not so much.
The job interview where I ordered spaghetti, I was stressed the whole time worrying that I'd swirl the spaghetti on my fork and a random drop of sauce would land on my shirt. I will never order spaghetti during a job interview again!
