ztnewetep: @johncmayer don’t worry. I give good meeting. And in Japan I’ll go to the floor with my bowing to show respect.
johncmayer: @ztnewetep I can’t tolerate handshakes without eye contact. I have been known to demand a re-shake.
ztnewetep: @johncmayer oh crap and “sight” youre supposed to look at friends.
ztnewetep: @johncmayer I believe invented to spill a drop of diplomats drinks into each others glasses so they knew they weren’t being poisoned.
ztnewetep: @johncmayer a toast is one of the few things that stimulates all senses (the sound, the touch, the smell from the drink, and the taste)
johncmayer A toast is like a handshake, but with your glass. Discuss

The special will air on PBS on April 1st at 8PM (check local listings) in conjunction with April as the Month of the Military Child. Watch a preview of ‘Coming Home: Military Families Cope With Change’ at YouTube.
In regards to the TV special, Mayer said on his Twitter account (@johncmayer) on Saturday:
I don’t ask often, but please tune in. It’s one of the most important things I have been (and will be) involved.
Injuries and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) will be one of the largest issues facing our country for many years to come.
Handing in your rifle doesn’t mean you’ve disarmed. The military mindset was not installed with an “off” switch, and we need to address it.
And that is said with complete admiration for our armed forces. I am proud to know several Marines (MCMAP) and they are to be revered.
