A Friendly Nudge

I'd say the other night we had a unique situation around our dinner table.

Senator Atkinson passed a petition around the table, written on a dinner napkin, and we adults signed it.

It went like this:

Dr. Conway,

This end of the table requests a shuttle cock demo - our 2 finest players vs. you.
It's a winner take all event with 1 year of FREE COFFEE at the Transfer Station.

So let's see it, Greg!


We 12 adults (and all of our signatures)

A friendly nudge not only helped us learn something new about our guest, but it created fun conversation and laughter around our table.  

And no, Dr. Conway didn't hop up for the match, though, by the way, Greg was division mixed doubles champion for Northern California. He was number 1 for both singles and doubles in his high school for three years running!  So very cool!

I saved that napkin, as it's going into my guest book as a reminder of the night.

I'd love to hear of any goofy, creative things that have happened around your table?

Oh, and this fury sweetness was also around our table that same night - Senator Jason's new puppy Lola!

The Hip Hostess apron winner is LaTeaDah from Gracious Hospitality! Congrats, LaTeaDah!
