John and I just threw a launch party for a friend, Dave Samuels, who recently pubbed his first book. Since I’m on a tight deadline, John and Dave’s wife Elizabeth did all the preparations: shopping, setting up the house, everything, while I stayed glued to my computer. I only showed up when the guests starting arriving. Now that’s the way to throw a party! I’m going to remember to have someone else do all the work from now on.
What comes to your mind when you think of the word “party”?
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
