The Annual Debate

It's that time of year again. The decision about Handy's company party. He hates parties, but I'm always interested in the prospect of free food I don't have to cook.  The past couple years they've been doing things a bit differently (no more Xmas party shrimp). Last year's was at a snazzy hotel with a rooftop bar and he grudgingly admits he had a good time. This year is a sit down (not buffet) 3 course dinner at a wine themed restaurant. 

So we were talking to Ernest last night (yay) and mentioned this (he has heard me rave about the shrimp) and perhaps also mentioned that if he was coming home that day Handy would be delighted to get out of going to the party. 

And wouldn't you know it, that dear sweet boy came through for his daddy and made a flight reservation for that very day. 

Some people owe me a dinner.

I am so glad my husband's office party is during the day and spouses are not invited.

I never mind D's. I always find plenty of people I like to talk to and he's the king of sociability.

When I worked at a Big Business, I detested their parties.

This weekend, I am going to a synagogue party with my husband. We are unlikely to be served shrimp! I don't mind going - everyone is very friendly, but I can never remember people's names.

My husband's office party situation is usually the same as Jen's. I don't mind going, but staying home is alright! I hope you get your dinner, dang it!

As I am married to an introvert, we got out of any parties he could manage avoiding. I prefer socializing with those I might perhaps have something in common with (it was usually me and a bunch of medical people).
But I agree, he owes you a nice dinner!
Hooray for college boys coming home for Christmas! :)
