Not now. I’m so tired. Not them… anyone but them! (Shepherds!)
To have to straighten up, serve refreshments (after finding some!). To have to make light, friendly conversation. Then the cleaning up afterwards!
-for uncouth, loud, acquaintances,
-people who smell like they’ve been working over a deep-fryer all night,
-people with no conversational skills, who tell weird stories;
-people who smell like… sheep.
Call up someone you don’t usually enjoy talking to, better yet–have them over for a visit.
