DP Daily Prompts: Linger

Tell us about times in which you linger–when you don’t want an event,or a day to end. What is it you love about these times? Why do you wish you could linger forever?

There have been times when I wanted Time to Standstill. These are occasions when we invite our friends to dinner. It is a very enjoyable time.

It begins by me writing a list of things I’d like to cook for the guests, which dish of mine my friends like, what goes with it e.g, vegetables, rice, salad.

Once I make up my list I go to the supermarket to buy the ingredients. Then it’s preparing the dishes. Some take longer than others. I enjoy preparing it for the friends.

I always ask my guests to come at 6 pm, so they can have fresh cooked food, I don’t have to wait after I’m done cooking, the food loses its taste if I have to keep warming it up.

The arrival of guests is the best part, we are in a jovial mood we catch up with what is new with them.Food good friends are a joy for me, it brings out the best in my friends, we talk about children, food, our recent travels. We leave out work it’s not always pleasant.

After dinner I serve coffee or tea with dessert, I’m always happy to see my friends, they end up staying longer, who would want the evening to end, I like it a lot when it lingers.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this nice post. It is clear that you definitely know how to serve guests. What a treat it would be to be a guest in your home :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. Ah, yes. Dinners with family and friends are wonderful times, and it seems that in society nowadays, people don’t set aside time for it. What a great choice of lingering.

    I remember this prompt from last year, well-timed as to something else that was on my mind with radio shows!
