The two extremes of house parties
The “Dear God! I think the host has invited everyone he has ever made eye contact with” party:
This is where 4,000 people are crammed into 3 tiny rooms (“why are the other doors locked? What is he hiding?“) in a small, semi detached house in Scunthorpe.
You have to hire a Sherpa to guide you to the party because the nearest parking space is 18 miles away.
You spend the evening counting the nose hairs of the other guests and plotting who you would have to kill to escape, should there be a fire.
You decide to leave at 10pm, but, because the host confiscated your machete, it takes you two hours to navigate your way through the other guests.
You go home and remind Alexa to order you a nose trimmer.
The kind where you WISH the host had invited everyone he’s ever made eye contact with:
“7 pm for 7:30…” the invitation said, so you rock up at 8:30, so not to be the first…
…only to find that you ARE the first…
…and the ONLY guest.
You look at the buffet. It’s HUGE. If every rugby team who ever lived popped by after doing a 2-week water fast, you’d still need to phone the council to ask for an extra brown bin.
You feel a pang of guilt for stopping off for a sneaky lasagne at the local Harvester on the way.
You spend 5 minutes in a fun conversation with the host and the rest of the evening in sheer anguish, praying that you’ll get an emergency phone call from your wife, saying that she’s in labour…
…Even though she’s not pregnant…
…and you’re not married…
As a party magician, I never know what’s going to be behind the door as I walk up the path with my bag of tricks (I don’t usually have playing cards in hand – that was just for the photo…), so it’s always a bit of an adventure, as I try to guess whether I’m going to be mobbed or use every trick I’ve ever learned to entertain 12 people for two hours…
