Maggie and I are both introverts. We’re most comfortable hanging out alone or with just one or two people. In the winter we isolate even more. It’s cold outside and neither of us are into sledding and all that wintery hoopla. After these past Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year holidays I was worried we’d hibernate on the weekends, just she and I in front of the TV watching Lost. I was worried we’d turn into The Shining twins or something come February.
I’m not preparing some gourmet tator-tot frenzied extravaganza here nor am I Abe Froman, tater-tot king of Geneva. Think of the tator-tots more as party food that will be available, same as Doritos or Hot Tamales.
My plan is to buy 4-5 bags of le tots and a few bottles of ketchup. My plan is not to be man-handling a deep fryer all night like the parking garage attendants man-handled Cameron’s dad’s 1961 Ferrari.
I’m *thinking* about having a get-together this coming Saturday, February 24th. If you’re reading this you’re invited. It would be a social mixer of sorts with snacks and drinks. No, I’m not making you all dinner. Tater-tots could possibly be available.
It would be kid friendly, too, since Maggie would also be hosting. Also, since you all know me you know that I don’t drink anymore. It’s not that I didn’t like drinking, it was more that I didn’t like to stop drinking. Yes, you could bring a bottle of wine but no boxed wine. You could bring a bottle of your favorite stout but no six-packs. You get idea.
Now hold your horses. This also isn’t some get-together where you tell your friends and then people fill my house like it’s an 80s movie. Kelly LeBrock wouldn’t be showing up the next morning with her science magic to put the furniture back in place. However, I may put on Oingo Boingo. I may also channel John Huges, maybe Ferris Bueller would be on the TV.
Before I go full-tilt with this kinda thing and decide to *actually* do it, is anybody interested?
