That sounds marvelous! Your guests should want to attend your dinner to visit with you and not be swayed by what is being served. (Unless, of course, of allergic reactions). But I do understand your thinking!Originally Posted by Lois Lane;2820216;
Here's a story. The roommate of my ex-boyfriend invited me to his wedding which surprised me. Nevertheless I gave him and his fiance a gift and wished them well, as the wedding was in another province. I was too sick to attend and couldnt' afford airfare. And I really didn't even know the bride at all.
Anyway, about a year or two later, I receive a call from them wondering if we could get together. I invited them over for cake and coffee on a Sunday afternoon. They accepted, arrive and promptly ignore my new boyfriend. Rude.
Then, as I get coffee out and present my nice homemade pineapple coffee cake, they announce that "they do not drink coffee or eat cake anymore". They have sworn to never combine foods ever again. It has changed their life. I was stunned. I couldn't figure out why on earth they didn't say that when we spoke on the telephone. It took a lot of energy for me to make that cake.
They then proceed to badger me with their newfound 'religion' and decide that food combining is why I became sick and ended up on disability. That the doctors, specialists, insurance company, etc., are all wrong and just dont' understand. The entire visit was more than strange, to put it politely. I stood firm on my cake and coffee and ate it right in front of them, whether they liked it or not. Rude of me? Maybe, but by then, I didn't care. My boyfriend, at the time, said that if those were my friends, he'd hate to see my enemies!
Oh, this was the same couple who called me a couple months later and asked "if they invited me to a party, would I come?" I said, yes, my boyfriend and I would gladly attend. I never heard from them again. Rude. And weird, IMO.
