I would like to hear a podcast about etiquette for various social situations, such as monster truck rallies, Easter egg hunts, and sitting at home alone.

The most commonly applicable etiquette for folks at home alone relates to those folks who are momentarily alone, but are not the only people who live in that home. E.g. if I were home alone, it would still be impolite for me to make a mess, eat all the chips, or clog the toilet and leave it for the next bathroom occupant to worry about.

That stuff's not too interesting, I suppose, because it's just normal etiquette that STILL applies when one is home alone.

A separate bit of etiquette that pops of BECAUSE one is home alone relates to the expectation that free time will be expended, at least partially, in performance of general chores. For instance, if my wife were to take our infant children somewhere for the day, and I were left alone, it would be polite (and reasonably expected) for me to use that window of free time to accomplish some household chores, even ones that I would not have been expected to perform if the kids were home and I was tending to them.
