Feast Update

On Thursday evening, I emailed FF with some questions about the dinner. Things like: will you do the prep at your house and bring it over, or are you doing all the prep at my place? How many pots and pans will you need? Do you want money in advance to pay for the food?  You know, practical questions.

On Friday, he emails me "I'll get back to you over the weekend."  I sent two texts and last night another email, saying "call me on your break at work".  I'm still waiting.

None of this is a surprise. One of my guests dropped by yesterday while I was raking endless leaves, and I told her to be ready for a meal cooked by Yours Truly. She said she's ready for a pot luck.

So I'm planning my own menu. At least the dining room has been cleared out and the good dishes are ready to be used for the first time in years and years.

I hope he's in jail. Nothing else will be a good enough excuse. (But am I surprised? No. Not at all.)

...and I'm going to be out of town this weekend!

Rest assured, when I get home, first thing I will do is check in to see how things turned out.

Of course, by Thursday morning, you might have already fired him from his first catering job.

If I wasn't going away for the weekend, I'd be camping out on your lawn for a ring-side window seat!

I guess web-camming the dinner is out of the question???

He checked in to say he had a terrible gastro problem and has been in bed for 3 days. Should we believe him?
Two weeks on his new job and he's already taking a sick day!
I advised him not to worry about Saturday. The gals have already be warned they may be served Cuisine by Nanuk instead of a fancy feast. They are fine with it.

If I just started a new job, I think I would be too embarrassed to take a sick day. I would go in until someone said "go home, you're sick!"

But that's just me!

But if it's a gastro problem can you make it into the office without pooping your pants?

OK...if it was THAT bad! Perhaps not!
