Teasing!

Here’s the next installment of manners and etiquette (courtesy of the Goops)?

Teasing
Tease to linger longer when your mother bids you go;
Tease to have a penny when your father answers, “No!”
Tease to have a story when your uncle doesn’t please;
That’s the way to be a Goop — tease, tease, tease!

Hint about the carriage when there’s only room for three;
Hint about the toys you like and every doll you see;
Hint about the candy, say you’re fond of peppermint;
That’s the way to be a Goop — hint, hint, hint!
