So, Holly’s home from India. Holly is a friend of mine.
Her family had a welcome home ‘party’ for her.
I was sat with my daughter, The Munch, and I looked around the kitchen. The evening was loudest and conversation was strongest when we had our mouths full with food!
How does that work?
I’ve always found that I get to know people best over a meal, I kinda think that maybe food has a way of eliminating small talk – which I am no good at. Rather than say something for the heck of it, I can eat another roast potato. But that doesn’t explain just why conversation got even better when food was served.
Often, eating can be really personal and a lot of people don’t like being watched whilst eating. But I guess, there’s also a sharing thing… I dunno!
Great food though and a lovely party.
