Several of my friends have recently hosted kitchen
product parties ("The Pampered Chef"™), but I'm not
interested in selling cookware. After all, it's best
if you can work up some enthusiasm for the product
you're pushing, and since I have an aversion to cooking
I can't see myself become giddy over, say, a scone
But for a sales party idea, I needn't look further
than across the kitchen table--at my husband, that

Tiffany: They charged me, like, $4.75 for making
Me: Congratulations, Tiffany; you're our winner.
Tiffany: (squealing) Awesome! One free Misappropriation
of Intellectual Property case! I, like, totally needed
Me: You do have some intellectual property, right?
Me: Nothing. More cake, anyone?
Yes, it could be an interesting party. Of course,
if I were to do something like that, I'd probably
never get invited to another--
