The roast was in the oven, the homemade ice-cream was setting in the freezer and the table was set. Felicity sat in the chair, running through the plans for the night to make sure she hadn’t missed anything. She’d planned conversation topics for pre-dinner chit-chat and had some ideas for charades if conversation dried up after the meal. As she relaxed, she noticed the light flashing on her answering machine.

There were three messages. Her heart sank as she listened to each of the messages; each of her guests cancelling for the night. Sitting back down, she started to plan the rest of her week – cold beef sandwiches and roast vegetable salads. And the conversation topics could last.
