Before I begin today's pressing Pieces of Wisdom question, I have two photos that did not make it into yesterday's hellish show-me-your-photos project:
Faithful Reader and always hilarious commenter Paula H&B sent us a photo of her leftovers, and hello. Who has this many leftovers? I guess probably people who cook have this many leftovers. In our fridge is some three-year-old Grey Poupon and a lemon.
Anyway, Paula hails from New York. Is it hails or hales? I don't even know what it means when you say someone hails from somewhere. It just means "from" there, right? Hales (hails). How ridiculous.
And here is my oldest and dearest friend, Pal from MA. The grownup, not the baby. Why would the baby be my oldest friend? Yes, I had no friends till I met this nine-day-old. Now he's my oldest friend.
Anyway. Obviously Pal is in Massachusetts, and she held a baby somewhere. Pal and I have known each other since we were practically this age. I don't mean our current age. I mean since we were toddlers we have known each other. She had a pool. I didn't. She also had this very large ballerina doll that spun around when you pressed its crown.
So those are the two photos I left out, because Paula and Pal sent them to my personal email and not my blog email, per my EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS.
You know, once when I was a waitress, someone asked me, "Miss? That soup and salad combination. Now, does that come with a salad and soup?"
Moving on to our Pieces of Wisdom for this week, I am having a partay this Saturday, and I really wish I'd get over writing "partay." The theme, because apparently every party I give or attend must have a theme, is June's Ball: A Celebration of Edsel's Neutering.
Those coming must bring a dish or drink that somehow ties in to the theme of Edsel's, you know, removal of his parts. Here is where I need your help.
Other than nuts and cheese balls and pigs in a blanket, what else can you think of that we can serve? Carpool Queen is bringing something brilliant, but I do not want to ruin her entrance.
I also thought I should blow up a photo of Edsel and we could play pin the balls on Edsel. What say you?
Okay, tell me your thoughts. Thank you for addressing this matter at your earliest convenience.
