Do You Like the Way I Hold My Fork?

I remember reading this quote years ago, "If you dislike someone, the way they hold their fork will make you furious. But if you like them, they can turn their plate over in your lap and you won’t even mind."  At the time, I was trying to get my husband to be less irritating and found a new perspective. 

I thought of that this week as I read The Screwtape Letters.  I saw myself when it pointed out how people focus more on how they are annoyed than on how they are annoying.  Dang these vistas of self-knowledge that are opened to one's view by reading!
