Dinner and the Traits.

--You never hear one woman invite another woman out to dinner, any more than you ever hear one man ask another to come and take tea with him.--No! it would seem that women's hearts melted and softened over the tea cup, and that men's souls flew open to each other with the table cloth. Who is there to explain it? It takes several knives and forks to dig into a man's secret nature, whereas the simple key of the tea caddy will unlock a woman's breast at any time.
