We spent yesterday playing games and eating things. It was fun. A baby was among the guests. She took the food, but fed it to the dog instead of eating it.
Before the other people came over, the girls were sitting around in their jammies drinking cider and reviewing the previous evening’s entertainment.
“You should have told us The Computer Guy was cute!” they scolded me and #2 daughter.
I was not aware that there was a rule about this.
#2 daughter had told them a funny story about him. I had mentioned him in relation to work. Where in there should we have said that he was cute?
#2 daughter and I were talking about that this morning. Is it required that you give a full report on everyone you tell stories about, for fairness’s sake?
She reminded me that she, too, once she had met The Computer Guy via Facebook, had said to me, “You should have told me he was hot.”
So maybe this is a rule.
We were considering what kind of disclaimer would be required before telling a story.
“Now, before I tell you this humorous story, I should mention that she’s actually very intelligent and kind to animals.”
“The story I’m about to tell you casts this person in a positive light, but I should mention he he actually has an irritating side.”
“I’m going to tell you a story about one of my clients, and I want you to know first that he’s sort of cute in a bald kind of way, but also married.”
I don’t know. If there are rules on this, I missed them somehow.
I will try to do better in future. For your information, The Computer Guy is in fact cute. In fact, I think most of the people I tell you about are pretty cute. Of the people who were here yesterday, both daughters and both sons are quite attractive. Sass is cute. The other single guy who was here looks a lot like the current James Bond, and had a better haircut this time than in previous visits. The guy with the baby… umm… actually, I have no idea what he looked like. I have to meet people a few times, I think, before I know what they look like. The baby was cute, though.
Does that help?
