The Holiday Dinner Party
I was feeling extra cheery this year, and I wanted to host a holiday celebration of some sort, but my apartment wasn’t quite big enough to throw an all-out blowout. So, I decided on the ever-popular alternative of a classy dinner party! My roommate _____________(01) offered to help clean and decorate the apartment. But I was definitely feeling a bit _____________(02) about cooking for a group of people. I decided the perfect outfit for the evening would be the ______________(03). There were just a few things I had to take care of before the big night. First of all, I had to bribe my curmudgeon landlord with a ___________(04) so he wouldn’t evict us if the noise level surpassed a strong whisper. Secondly, I had to get my sick pet out of the apartment. Nobody wants to see a puking ___________(05) that smells like _____________(06) while they’re eating.
The first hour of the party was great! Everyone was eating and chatting and having fun. I got several compliments on my _______(07). We weren’t even bothered by my __________(08) landlord. I ________(09) in my chair! That’s when tragedy struck.
I was taking the gingerbread dessert out of the oven, when it slipped out of my hands, and shattered on the ground. I sliced my hand on the glass and got cobbler all over my ______________ (10). Oh, fate, you are a ___________(11)______________(12)!! I donned my ___________(13), said goodbye to my stunned and disgusted guests, and prepared to brave the cold wintry night to get myself to the ER. The waiting room was completely full so I pulled out my copy of ____________(14) and dreamed of relaxing in ____________(15), or anywhere but a chaotic emergency room.
While I was waiting, I got the strangest urge to ____________(16), so I did. This caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey, who had been sitting right next to me the entire time! She __________(17) asked me to stop. I couldn’t believe it! She looked even more beautiful in person, carrying a ___________(18) and wearing a __________(19) blouse. She felt so bad about my botched dinner party that she offered to bring me on her show and grant me my greatest holiday wish, which of course, was _______________(20).
