A friend of mine asked where we put all our guests at our Pot Luck Dinner.
Well….we can seat 10 comfortably at the table; so we set up a card table for 4 and 4 more for the livingroom. Now, so that no one feels left out, we put numbers randomly at all the positions available.
When they started to go down the Buffet line, they picked a number out of a hat and then they had to find their corresdponding number at one of the tables. When it was time for the dessert course, the ones that had been sitting at the diningroom table, had to move to allow the others to move to the table and relax.
After long conversations everyone drifted into the livingroom for the balance of the evening. What a hoot!
