We went to a so-called “soiree” at a friend’s house on Saturday night. There were more than a dozen adults and a few children. The idea was that everyone would perform a small item, whether music, recitation, or what-have-you.
It turned out that we had some accomplished singers and musicians, and some whose enthusiasm compensated for their technical deficiency.
I am ashamed to say I was surprised how enjoyable this low-tech and humane gathering was. It was, in fact, entertaining.
But best of all as far as this blog is concerned, it was FREE.
