Unsolicited Advice #6: Prerequisites for Party Attendance

Never arrive at a party without a gift.  My mother, a woman of little planning and huge generosity, regularly picks up stones from the driveway on her way to a gathering.  Gifts of stone, plant, or pastry are especially welcome.  Call them hostess gifts even if the recipient is male.

*Sigh* Having been rejected from commenting without an I.D., I no longer feel the urge to comment. I will say that I agree to this unsolicited advice, but would ask whether or not hostess gifts (for males, females, or GLBTQs) should be limited to parties. Why not ALL social engagements?
