A few years ago, this email chain happened - Reply All style:
Couple 1: Who is up for watching a movie and maybe having a little St. Patty's Day Potluck this Saturday evening?
Polly: We are! We are! I could make spam and cabbage!
Couple 2: We’re free Saturday night after 6:30 – 7:00 PM; would that work for everyone else? Also, we’ll bring the culinary opposite of spam and cabbage (i.e. smores).
Couple 1: Yeah...um...the Scotts are about to be uninvited!!! SMORES! SMORES! SMORES! 7 PMish it is then, unless we hear different.
Polly: What? What about just plain spam . . . ? 7 works for us.
Couple 1: While we reconsider your invitation, we strongly recommend you reconsider your menu contribution :)
Jake: First let me apologize for my wife. As Couple 2 can attest, dinner parties are not one of Polly's strong suits, i.e. Easter dinner debacle of 2011. In fact, that is the only example I have because they have managed to avoid all other invitations. Consequently, I assure you Polly will not be in charge of the menu contribution. I feel like haggis is the most appropriate menu contribution.
We can’t figure out why we haven’t heard back from them yet.
