Now I know that sometimes you hear them high falootin uppity society folks talkin about being ‘Fashionably Late’. That’s cause their wanting to make some kind of grand entrance to show everybody that they got more money than Carter has pills. But here in the real world if your fixen to have a hoedown at 6:00 then that means the festivities are starting at 6. So decent people know to start showing up between 5:30 and 5:45 depending on how well you know the hostess or host. Because most folks I know aint got no cooks or maids or butlers and it’s just common courtesy to help folks get set up.
And you sure blamed don’t want to be like Janet Hopkins that time when she was going to be fashionably late to Doris Brown’s 70th birthday. So she showed up at the house about a half hour late and she ended up sitting outside with the young’ens with nothing to eat except her own dried out casserole. That woman never did learn how to cook. I swear she couldn’t even boil water and end up with anything wet left in the pan. I think her problem is she just gets too scatter brained and tends to ramble on instead of taking care of the business at hand.
So anyway, to make a long story short, make sure you get to a place on time. And if you’re going to a pot luck type of shindig, have your stuff fixed up and ready to eat before you get there. Nobody wants to wait while you boil your eggs to make your so called famous deviled eggs.
Til next time my friends…
