Social Assemblages

When entertaining, emulate not the ingracious Mad Hatter.

When entertaining, emulate not the ingracious Mad Hatter.

It is important to be an agreeable, or at least inoffensive, guest.

But most anyone can be invited to a social function; it is more difficult to plan an event and nearly impossible to effectuate it without a hitch.

I commend any who host dinner parties and celebrations, honoring others by giving of themselves and risking unattendance or ingratitude for their labor. A good host not only prepares for such events, and any accompanying eventualities, but attends the needs of his guests during their duration.

Being a host is a lot of work that only gets easier with practice.

As it is a skill upon which I must improve, this week I will plan a social gathering, a casual activity at a neutral location to which I will invite a few friends.
