We spread newspaper on the kitchen table, filled a beach bucket with water, and put in a soil "tablet" from the hardware store. They had great fun watching it expand, then filling an egg carton with the soft damp soil. We put seeds in each compartment, then put it on the windowsill and checked them daily. On the evening of the second day, we had tiny sprouts, and 5 days later we were planting them outside! Very entertaining for everyone: we shall see if they grow well into the South Florida rainy season!
Gearing Up for Family Gardening

I was not so careful about this until I threw a party and viewed it from the hostess' perspective. THEN I realized how important it was: I was in the position of having 12 children attending, but the 13th had not yet responded. The party favors came in packs of 12. I had to order a total of 24 party favors to cover the possibility that the 13th child MIGHT come. Responding in a timely way allows your hostess to plan a party that people want to attend: not all of us can casually throw something together and have it be fun, tasty, and memorable off the cuff. Responding allows your host to throw a better party . . . DO IT!
