Most of us like to be entertained; but some people enjoy entertaining.
Most of us are in the first group and only end up wearing the host or hostess hat because we were drafted.
When that happens, the creativity instincts kick in and all kinds of ideas about the easiest and fastest way to get happy guests in and out, start coming to mind.
But instead you find yourself involved in:
- working up detailed menus;
- performing time-consuming chores;
- constantly reminding yourself to remember to erase the name of who volunteered you for this project from your holiday gift list; and
- watching the clock and wondering why you weren't given sufficient time to make it all come together. Like 3 years instead of 3 days!
Describing myself? Yes indeed.
