You know you've had a really good 60th birthday party if, when clearing up the morning after, the three most random items left by guests departing at daft o'clock the night before, are:
a) A Pyrex bowl.
b) A single jewelled flip-flop.
c) A Screw-Fix catalogue.
I'm not really sure which of those things I find the most puzzling.
Maybe someone felt they had to bring their own Pyrex bowl just in case our party food turned out to be a bit more stomach-churning than usual, or they intended to get raucously drunk and weren't sure if they should partake of vast amounts of alcohol whilst on medication. That sort of fits in with the age group.
Re the single flip-flop - I tried to remember if we'd entertained a female unidexter*, or someone with their leg in plaster, or if any of our friends had arrived and left in an unusual hopping style, but I can't recall anyone who fits the bill.
Maybe the thing that mystifies me the most is the Screw-Fix catalogue. WTF was that all about?
