We've all been in crazy situations, and I want to know how you handle entertaining fiascoes and bad restaurant behavior. I'll present a situation and you tell me what you would do. Here's this week's scenario:
To get to know your best friend's new boyfriend, you decide to host a dinner party with them and some other couples. You serve the food buffet-style to keep the atmosphere relaxed and promote conversation. When the new guy gets in the buffet line, he takes his plate, walks over to the sink, and starts rinsing it with water. Your friends behind him in line stop and stare. What would you do?
To see what I would do in this situation — true story, it happened to a friend! —
I would walk right up to the new guest and ask him what he's doing. It turns out he was warming his plate — which is a little odd for a dinner party — so I would offer to warm his and any other plate in the oven.
How about you? What would you do? Have you ever tried to warm your plate at someone else's house?
