RSVPs are like little gifts

I’m hoping to have some friends over in a few weeks. I emailed them to 1) save the date, and 2) properly set expectations.

Mi casa. No one leaves sober.

Several sweet, feeling-type people replied:

  • “Looking forward to it!”
  • “Can’t wait!”
  • “It’s calendar’d!”


These people really are cuddly in-person — it’s cute how that correlates.


And there were fun RSVPs:

  • “Hell yeah! It’s been too long since I last stumbled home drunk from your place.”


Agreed. My bad.

  • “Are we allowed to hit on coworkers?”


I like where you’re going with this, and at my place, “inappropriate” DNE.


I think this response from my neighbor, though, wins the prize:

  • “FYI. She is a lot of fun but I feel like I am too old for this kind of party. We will see how we feel.”
