Once upon a time via text message…
Guy: What are you doing Saturday night?
Me: Nothing as of now
Guy: My friend is having people over. Would you like to come?
Me: Sure. Do I need to eat beforehand?
Guy: His girlfriend is going to make some food so no. They’re expecting us to eat there.
Me: Ok, I just have to be cognizant of my diabetes but I’m sure it will be fine. Is it a dinner party or just having people over?
Guy: He said “I’m having a party and my girlfriend is cooking a bunch of food”
Guy: I’ll inquire what kind.
Two days later (on the day of the party)…
Guy: Does lasagna meatballs with cheese sound okay? It will be that and a few other seemingly Italian dishes
Me: I can make it work. Italian is usually full of carbs so I may snack beforehand…
… aka eat a full meal.
