A Class Act
Etiquette School of Frisco
Yes, you’re allowed to eat asparagus with your hands.
But that doesn’t mean you should extend the practice to everything on the table.
If such niceties eluded you at that last dinner party (the gasps of horror tipped you off), you should pay a visit (or several) to The Etiquette School of Frisco (yes, Frisco).
Marsha Horne, resident maven of proper behavior, conducts etiquette and table manners classes for toddlers, teens, wedding parties, and even the average adult in need of some gentle reminders (like how to sit gracefully and when to use the small spoon) — ideal for even the staunchest of city types.
In her weekly classes she addresses topics such as appropriate table conversation, avoiding wardrobe malfunctions, and even telephone and correspondence etiquette. Or, if you’re in need of a serious overhaul, you can opt for private sessions.
After a few lessons, your errant table manners will be gone.
Just don’t count on them being forgotten.

You’ve Got Spirits
Ghost Investigator Elizabeth Mack-Hosier
Damn that Carol Anne.
Everything was fine until she made you question the true nature of your television set. And all these years later, you’re still freaked out by unfinished pools.
Put your mind at ease with the help of local ghost investigator Elizabeth Mack-Hosier. She and fellow member of the American Ghost Society conduct interviews, research, and scientific investigations in pursuit of the truth — free of charge.
The group uses no psychics or mediums. Just electrical magnetic readers, temperature gauges, and recorders (video and voice) to gather facts.
Of course, you’ll have to undergo an extensive interview (no pranksters, please). And nothing begins until the location is researched and every witness is separately interviewed.
Don’t worry: Mack-Hosier’s had a few crazy experiences, so she doesn’t scare easily.
Which should make you especially glad she’s heeere.

Acoustic Wave Therapy
Your motto: Practice makes perfect.
Which could explain your forever-rotating collection of BFFs, S.O.s, and J-O-Bs.
Luckily, the sixth time’s the charm for cellulite reduction on problem areas — like the tummy, bottom, and thighs — with Acoustic Wave Therapy. Each session (usually fifteen to twenty minutes) uses sound waves to treat your, er, dimply bits.
Here’s how it works: The movement causes your connective tissue to contract and expand, which improves its flexibility. But it also causes your hypodermis (a subcutaneous layer of loose tissue connecting fat cells) to bruise. The body then makes more blood vessels to ensure the area gets a better supply of nutrients in order to heal.
You’ll see firmer and smoother skin just a few weeks after the sixth treatments. Best part? Touch-ups are needed only every three months.
And that’s just, well, perfect.
Available at Timeless Skin Rejuvenation & Laser Spa, 6333 East Mockingbird Lane, suite 260, East Dallas (214-824-8463 or timelessmedspa.com).
