The magical 3 things
I’m smiling to myself today because I’ve just sent an email to our guests and it’s already causing a stir!
It was nothing too complicated (at least I don’t think so) it was merely a request to bring 3 things. That is, 3 stories about of them; 2 being truthful and the other being a lie. Well, I’d never have guessed that this request would prove such a ‘challenge’ to our would be guests! Most are claiming that we know all there is to know about them already and that they’re therefore unable to think of anything that we don’t already know. Well, I beg to differ. I’m sure they’ll come up with the goods on the evening. In the meantime, I’m going to sit back and enjoy the panick-stricken emails. Yes, I’m wicked.
Here’s the text from my email, how would you react?
There are only 7 days to go… We’ve been very
busy preparing for your arrival and can’t wait to see you!
Have you decided what you’re going to wear yet? If not, now’s the time! And if
your piggy bank will allow it, why not use our event as an excuse to treat
yourself to something new? Go on, you know you deserve it. 😉
Whatever the garb, leave your worries behind but bring a smile, oh and THREE
things we didn’t know about you.
That’s right. You read correctly. We’d like you to bring THREE statements about
you that you believe nobody else will know. E.g. “I broke my arm when I
was 12 after I jumped off a roof in an attempt to fly like a bird”
Dig into the deepest, darkest recesses of your memory and don’t hold back. We
want to know all there is to know about you (okay, within reason) but be
cunning; all three statements should appear true but one of them must be false.
It’ll then be down to your fellow diners to collectively work out the truths
from the fib.
We’ll ask you for your statements during dinner so get your brain cells
See you Saturday at 19:30!
