It's the good wife's 30th at the end of this month. So I was thinking I should organise a party.
Then I realised I'd never organised a party before.
Nevermind I set forth with my planning.
Should be fairly simply to inform everyone of date, place, etc I thought.
Then I remembered we lived in a canyon with poor cell coverage.
Then I realised that every party needs a game. Preferably something frivolous, silly and with little point.
I settled on a mass game of Subbuteo between the invited guests thinking that a knockout game would involve a few laughs but then I remembered that this party is going to consist largely of latinos and latinas, a combustible prospect at the best of times but factor in the fact that the only 2 guests who might enjoy such a game (the father and step father) don't exactly like spending time with one another and its probably not exactly going to be a great success.
This might be the only party I ever arrange.
I should probably just hope that the subbuteo gear doesn't turn up on time. Or that noone gets the invites.
Its probably just as well I wasn't in charge of our wedding.
