My wife and I threw a housewarming party on Saturday (some people, including myself, might refer to it as an Open House – but I guess that would be wrong because I associate Open Houses with someone who’s trying to sell theirs, and we’re defintely not. I also associate the term Open House with back to school night for some reason, but I digress).
To any of you out there thinking of throwing a Housewarming Party, don’t. But if you do, count on the numerous calls you will receive on the day of the party from all the people who said they were coming but now are calling to explain why they can’t. While this is disappointing, these people are infinitely better than those who say they are coming and then don’t.
Do you people know how hard it is to make spanakopita Do you realize that sweet and sour meatballs just don’t make themselves Who’s going to drink all this soda Not to mention the six pack of beer that will sit in my fridge for the next year.
Anyway, if there was such a thing as a “leftover party,” we’d be fully stocked.
BTW, the people who came to our party seemed to have a very nice time and my wife was the perfect hostess. Next time, though, we’re catering.
