In which I admit I’m not Martha Stewart…

Next Sunday Geoff and I are hosting a little birthday dinner party for my father-in-law and brother-in-law. I called some relatives to invite them to the dinner. These are the reactions I got:

  • From my father-in-law, “Oh, dinner at your place? What happened to the Bull Run?”
  • From my Aunt Deb, “Are you sure you can handle this?”
  • From my Aunt Allison, “Have you had a dinner party before?” and "Well, call me if you need help."

For Christ's sake, I’m not hosting the United Nations here. It’s eight people!

Although I am no Martha Stewart, I am certain I can manage to cook dinner for 8 people.

Alright, “certain” might not be the right word. Let’s just say I’m pretty sure I can do it.

And if I can’t, I am certain I can make reservations.
