Who has sit down formal type family dinners? I was raised with kind of old fashioned values and stuff, but one thing I never really did like was formal type eating. When I eat, I go off and eat on my own. When you really think about dinner conversation and all the talking... whats the point of doing that at dinner? Makes it hard to eat and talk at the same time. Seems logically, you should stuff your face at a separate time than "conversation hour". Maybe for me it's just I dont like people watching me eat. And I tend to eat when I'm hungry, not when dinner is scheduled.
