Another crazy day ahead
Planning a meal for strangers is never easy. I need to guess dietary requirements, have veggie options just incase, and make our home and myself look beautiful. Jackie the entertainer, and Goddess of the kitchen, my hair should be immaculate, my clothes hot off the press. Oh what joys await me.
It’s always hard trying to find something that we may have in common, at times I find it impossible. I never know who is going to enter our home, all I know at the moment is that it will be mainly a group of men. ( one lady) I always find men easier, women can be so bitchy at times, this is done normally with a bright smile but the words can be so cutting. I remember one such lady saying with a bright smile that she really loves my dress, “she has always loved me in that dress”. ( the underlying meaning, I have worn it before) Men just don’t pick up these bitchy comments, Tony complimented my choice of evening wear, saying that he also really loves “that dress”. Bless him he had no idea that it was a put down.
I never know if the women are being nice because they actually like me, or is it because they wish for their husbands to be promoted etc… I entertain the trophy wives, these are normally at least ten years younger often from third world countries most have no brains, but look stunning. I put on my smiling clown face and let them rabbit on about themselves and how wonderful they are. I turn a blind eye when a few are almost in my husbands lap, trying to impress him, the low cut dresses, or the short skirts normally are the warning signs. I always remember the words ” Just because they smile at you, this does not make them your friend”
Hopefully this evening all will enjoy the food I have put so much effort into preparing, my husband will not get loads of distracting telephone calls, so I am left alone courting them all. An added bonus, that the lady who will be visiting will be an everyday housewife, not from the beauty parlor brigade, with a face filled with botox.
