365 Writing Prompts: Party animals?
After spending time with a group of people, do you feel energized and ready for anything or do you want to hide in the corner with a good book?
The parties I’m invited to attend are not crazy or noisy, they are meant to be a get together of friends and family. Main attraction is food, the hostess displays her culinary skills and wants her guests to appreciate the time she spent cooking in preparation of the grand event.
The guests come dressed in their latest Sari and jewelry, some of us admire, others do more, they actually inquire where they bought the awesome dress. Men wear suits, which doesn’t attract any conversation.
Meal is usually served to the children and the male guests first, the female guests are lucky to be served after 10 pm. If you are wondering why that is so, I can only say it is the custom.
The food is always delicious, chicken, beef, and fish is on the menu, rice is the primary food, bread is served very seldom. There are salads and other vegetable dishes served also.
After the meal dessert is served with tea or coffee.
Mothers of younger kids leave before, others wait another few minutes and make their exit.
This is the kind of party we have. I don’t feel any pressure to go home and hide in the corner with a book!
