Playing houseguest may seem simple, but there are a few golden rules by which one should always abide. Thankfully, Domino Magazine's Muse Marian (hers was always a favorite segment of mine) spells them out for those of us who may need a bit of a refresher. Hosting a poorly mannered guest can be a miserable experience (we all have our horror stories!). Likewise, a phenomenal houseguest can be tons of fun. If you plan to be a guest this holiday season, I suggest that you read the text – memorize it even! – so that you leave your host with happy memories while he/she is cleaning up the aftermath of your visit. If you’ve anything to add (or vent about), please do so in the comments - I love to read them!
