Q: Where do you put an iced tea spoon after you have stirred your tea with it?
A: If there is a plate under the glass, you put it there. If not, you may put it on another plate if you have a place setting. If there are no other plates, you may put it on a paper, but not cloth, napkin. If there are no paper napkins, then you can do nothing but hold it for a moment over the glass until it finishes dripping and put it on the placemat or tablecloth.
