I knew something was wrong, and I was right.
According to all of our previous calculations, to finish the Imaginary Dinner Party Game we should need to add three chairs tomorrow. But when I counted the empty chairs at Table 2, and subtracted from eight players, the result was two. It didn’t add up.
And then, while pouring over the Dinner Party Invitation Log, it hit me!
|Daughter C’s pick from Tuesday had not been seated!! (Although it was dutifully noted in The Log.)|
Beginning Tuesday, seating mattered to many of us. I hear tell that Daughter C’s invited guests are mostly interested in sitting in chairs that aren’t going to break. (This is embarrassing when it happens in real life. I mean, we have nice chairs but they are sort of
crappy old nice chairs, and more than one has broken during a time when a real guest was seated.)
Your call, Daughter C. Tonight, seating mattered to almost everyone. No one had a chance to sit next to Diane Keaton. What should we do? At one end, we can turn back the clock and do a total re-do. At the other, Diane can just pull up a chair. Your call.
