I’m just so happy to be cooking a meatloaf for Bill and all of his work friends this evening.

They’re not too loud.

Dinner parties make your husband look good.

For example, If I don’t make the perfect meatloaf, Bill’s boss will think he keeps beating him at golf as some sort of idiot savant.

Okay . . . everyone has arrived.

Better just set the table.

Did I seem too manly when I strode across the room to get that damask tablecloth out of the cupboard? I hope not!

Oh, okay. Bill’s work friends didn’t even notice. Thank goodness.

They’re knee-deep in cocktails.

Work hard, play hard.

I never get to play hard. Why is that?

I’ll just mosey back over to the stove.

I don’t think we’ll be able to get this out of the sofa.

His boss is here — he’s old as Methuselah.

He’s going to make me uncomfortable while he breathes his creepy breath in my face.
