I had a delightful weekend that involved eating and talking, eating and talking, eating and talking.
In other words, it was perfectly typical.
Saturday morning I met some life-long friends from Guatemala for breakfast and we spent two fun hours catching up our respective lives. From there we went to a food tasting in downtown Wake Forest to support a friend/teammate of Mr. CPQ’s who was launching his new BBQ sauce.
Then Saturday night I attended my first ever recently neutered pet party at June’s house where I got to meet a bunch of neat people and hang out with all the Gardens’ pets and eat delicious food and even sit in the famous Angry Chair for six seconds before Francis hissed at me.
I went by myself to the party which is a pretty big deal because parties where I don’t know more than one person are not my strong suit because I’m not so good with the chit-chat, but I sat next to a friend of June’s who was just a delight and we got along famously and talked for most of the evening so everything turned out just fine and I didn’t have to excuse myself to the bathroom and lock the door because I didn’t know anybody.
Not that I’ve ever done that.
It was a back-up plan.
I don’t think I committed any major faux pas (can that be plural?) but I did leave the party with one question which I will pose to you today. If you are a female and you are invited to a non-work/business party and you are introduced to another female that you’ve never met, do you shake hands with that woman or do you just nod and smile?
I won’t tell you what I did in case I’m wrong.
Have a nice day.
