Happy Saturday

Happy Saturday.
I threw a birthday party last week.
I forgot the invitation list.
But not the chips and dip.
But the cake.
And the ice cream.
It was a disheartening party to say the least.

What do actual people do when they throw a party?
I've made assumptions in my life that now prove to be incorrect.
The amount of time it takes to make lists.
Perhaps, it takes others less time.

And I have an odd anxiety linked to using the internet,
because,
it feels like if it were to disappear I would lose,
plenty
plenty
plenty.
