But colds or allergies diminished attendance. I expected 6 people, possibly 9. The extra 3 people never materialized, and 2 of the 6 cancelled because of respiratory ailments. Ilana was one of the 3 possibles; however, she called in the evening to say she wasn't going to be able to make it but to remind me of the party at her place next weekend.
I had fun nonetheless. I learned how to play Dungeons and Dragons. I played once as a kid, but just that once. You'll have to ask my dad why there was never a second time. After a few hours of D&D, our interest started to wane, so we switched to Taboo. Keya and I kicked ass, naturally. <grin>
In sum, I had a fun time, as I'd hoped, and the house got cleaned. I'd say it was a win all around. :)
