I've been preparing food all week for this event. The table is set, the food is ready for the last minute heating and final preparation. A quick run of the vacuum through the house is complete. I'm ready.
My house cat is not feeling well. She's locked in the main level bathroom, she has trouble standing upright, she walks with her head tipped to the side and sometimes just falls over. Is it possible she slipped into the kitchen and sampled something I'm unaware of? After consulting with the vet, she's on meds to help her, but under quarantine for her own good. Can't have her falling down the stairs or off of furniture. So she's in a very large bathroom, with her bed, food and water, her litter box and the television on the Animal Channel.
Speaking of television and movies, I'm certain my guests are unaware that one of my favorite movies is Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians. I even have a copy of the original play. Would they be able to draw a connection to today's events? Ten guests invited to a mysterious weekend at the home of a mystery host. Do they leave alive? That's for those of you who haven't read the book, the play, or seen the movie to find out.
I'll write more tomorrow to let you know how the mystery ingredient secret sampler party turns out........to be continued.
