The Swiss - Claire Polders
Yesterday, we were invited to a family dinner at the house of our friend’s kind neighbors. I was a tad nervous. We’d enjoyed two convivial dinners together back in October, so I knew I had nothing to fear, yet I usually feel timid before a social event: you never know what will happen, what jokes might fall flat or what odd silences might mound like a bill you’ll have to pay.
