 How we eat dinner is as indicative as what we eat.  Take going out for dinner for instance.  It is commonly accepted that when we sit down at a restaurant we must conscious that we leave in a timely fashion because the restaurant needs to turn over our table, the waitress wants another table to wait on and so there is a sense of urgency while eating, conscious or subconscious but it's there.  This is aided by the fact that we live in busy times, people don't necessarily...
