Oh, this reminds me of the story from the Web site with the "cheese doodles."  (Was it a baby shower or something?)

I've had friends like that too.  No, please don't place your big bag of Doritos on the table between the floral centerpiece and the crystal platter with the handmade mini-quiches!   ::)

Wasn't there a story on the site also about someone who brought Hamburger Helper tuna casserole in a green tupperware bowl to a formal dinner? And they got mad when the hostess wouldn't place this lovely item along with the better food items arranged on the table.

Maybe she thought it was a crock-tail party.

Hey, it could happen!

Ouch!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."
