Where the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is a relentless series of one champagne-and-fancy-appetizer party after another?
And who does all this dropping-in? If I’ve been urged via radio and TV to keep a particular item on hand because of all the people who are going to drop in, I’ve been urged to keep a dozen.
Wouldn’t my friends and family be surprised were I to actually take ‘em by surprise and drop in, looking expectantly around for bottles of bubbly and platters of goodies to be whipped out for my entertainment?
Personally, I prefer some notice (to be frank, I prefer to do my own inviting, too) so as to make sure the carpet is vaccumed, the kitchen floor swept, and the litter boxes tidied up.
Drop in at your own risk.
