Trying to keep a party “small”
So you want to throw a party. Good luck keeping that guest list where you want it. The second you invite this person, it triggers the need to invite that other person who you know will want to know what the first person is doing that night. And that person wants to bring a date. And you actually think that’s fine, because you’d rather she was distracted by her date than talking to you. But then another friend says, “Well then why can’t I bring a date?” Dear lord.
