    Reality Check

    Okay, so there's nothing odd about having cold bitter greens and champagne for breakfast, is there?

    The think the rule is...

    It's ok for anyone who lives in the Keys; but for the rest of us, it's a little weird.

    Did you blend them up and make a smoothie?

    Amazing, the difference in cultural mores between the Keys and the mainland.

    Last night's champagne or just popped? This is important. Flat champagne and greens would be wrong. I believe everything goes with good champagne.... as long as you're using the proper glass (for the champagne) and the appropriate fork (for the greens). It's all in the decorum you Old Fool

    Who drinks used champagne? I eat everything with a full scale fork, but a clean one at each appropriate course change (salad, entree, desert). I wasn't aware that champagne could be poured into anything other than a glass flute or an elegant woman's slipper. The latter vessel is just not appropriate for a mid-morning breakfast, especially one partaken solo.

    Thank goodness! I was very briefly concerned. But you have me convinced.

    A less mature individual might be slurping last night's bubbly from the bottle with a straw and eating the greens with their fingers straight outta the frig with the door standing open.

    You, sir, are officially deemed as "having class." From this moment forward anything you do that falls outside of current social mores shall be deemed as "trend setting." Have at it.
