today I am a party

tags: , , ,

At 3.30pm, I wandered into the deserted St. Ia bar.  The young bar staff who took my order for a cream tea asked:

“are you a party?”

yes please, thankyou

6 bits of lovely banter on “today I am a party”

    Are you a party? My reply would have been, “No one has ever accused me of that before!” And yes, I do say things like that, and am always met by blank stares…
    Happy New Year, party girl!

    There’s an almost honorific aspect to being called “a party”. I’d certainly treat it as a compliment.

    Happy New Year Wendy!

    quite so Mathias, I did feel rather grand being mistaken for a party when I was all on my todd! Happy new your to you and yours and the kitties and our friends in your time zone…. we’ve still got 5 hours to go here 🙂

    Brings to mind those v.old Punch cartoons.
    You’ll remember the drawing of a coach driver trying to help a huge woman into the coach –
    Coachman: ” Try sideways, Ma’am.”
    Stout Party: ” Bless you, I ain’t got no sideways.”

    Party equated to entity or person. How would you feel being asked “Are you an entity?”

    ah yes grumps, the party of the first part and the party of the second part were both party to the party which was not a coach party because it was way too big. Well spotted
