A Bowl of Rocket
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Saturday night I had an invitation with friends. I was scared as I did not know what types of food would be there so I decided we would bring , besides two white wine bottles, a bowl of salad. I ended up with rocket as it's tasty and washed it really well. It was crispy and savoury with a bit of bitter - perfect in my eyes.
I brought it in a nice glass container with a blue cap.
The supper was at a friends' house, and I gave it to her. To my surprse, she had a disgusted expression on her face as she saw the salad.
She put it on a side table and forgot about it. I was nearby, so I offered it to the guests next to me when the second coures arrived. To my horror, the hostess never thought to offer it nor put a fork so that guests could help themselves so I used a knife to put it on my plate but it was impossible for the others to help themselves...I was so humbled ..I know it's stupid but rocket was my staple food for that meal. The rocket was disgraced and neglected and I felt the same.
Someone else was at the centre of that invitation so I ended up watching TV all one as nobody paid attention to me.
I felt really bad, despite all my good intentions. It went all wrong and I'm still wondering why?????????
PS Now the hostess and friend has offered us the chance of a summer holidays to US with them.
It means I will have to do all the paperwork (passports ,air tickets )and they only expect to land beautifully on some airport in US.
This is the fun of it. The last time we planned a trip together they canceled it the very day we had to leave and Germany is still waiting for us... Their change of plan at the last minute cost me about 300 euros and I'm still wondering why should I experience it again?
So dear SP people, I need your help: Should I go on or refuse to organize such a complex trip with them?BTW they can only speak a bit of French therefore guess who would be translating the whole time????
