I am at a housewarming. We took a spinach salad & a decadent chocolate cake (because we’re nothing if not balanced.) The conversation has ranged over many topics including advertising standards, beauty competitions, movies, and the joys of smoking. Of particular interest is the number of times the lives of the people who are here have intersected previously but they are just discovering now. There is a lot of laughter and a lot of bubbles. Happy housewarming!
