I need about two hours of gracefulness
Tuesday, December 11, 2007


I agreed to be a hostess on Friday at a "Grandparents' Coffee" at Ryan's school. Grandparents have been invited to come enjoy coffee and cider while they eat finger foods and listen to the kids sing Christmas songs.

In addition to welcoming the guests, I will be responsible for making sure the grandparents at my table have a full hot cup of coffee or cider. (I'm also supposed to wear a Christmas apron, but I don't own an apron of any variety. I'm working on borrowing one but I'm unsure which of my friends could possibly own a Christmas apron.) I am approaching this event with much fear and trembling. There is a reason I have never considered waitressing as a profession. I can barely walk across a room without tripping. I rarely pour myself a cup of coffee without dripping more than a few drops on the counter. I will be so pleased with myself if I get through the morning without scolding some sweet little Granny by splashing hot coffee in her lap.

If I lived nearer, I'd lend you an apron!

I thought of you this morning when I spilled a few drops of coffee on my counter, like I do EVERY morning. I'm sure you'll do just fine and all of the little grannies will just love you!
