Going to a non-event tonight. A non-event isn't an event. It isn't really a party. It isn't anything. Unless. Unless. Unless everyone wants it to be.
You want to play cards. Great. Find somene else who does and play cards with them. Don't persuade anyone to play cards against their will.
The same goes for loud music, dancing, computer games, other games, TV watching. These things can only happen in the company of people who want them to happen. You can't turn the TV on in a room if one other person doesn't want it.
It's a sort of lowest common denominator party. Been to it for the last ten years or so and always had fun, food and fine wine.
Pity it's Sunday tomorrow.
