The rules of party hosting have changed:
~Your guests are no longer grateful at being invited.
It’s your duty to invite them.
~They tell you that they are going to bring someone
Asking is for pussies.
~They are allowed to bring whomever they like, extended family who happen to be visiting, distant relatives, friends they haven’t seen in years, homeless of the street…and you as party host must look happy and delighted for the extra mouths to feed.
~Even though you give them three weeks notice, they reserve the right, to cancel a day before, or an hour before…. or better yet, they reserve the right to simply not show up.
Conclusion: The Big G is testing my extroverted personality….he’s sitting there mouthing at me……..see you really are a hermit….…..
