Fish and guests, she liked to stay, smell after three days. We remember this rule when it comes to cooking; we also remember it when it comes to guests. Three days is a perfect long weekend to catch up with friends. Day one, we're happy to see them; day two, a full day of adventure; day three, we're ready to settle back into our routine. Recently, we've found that the number of guests follows a similar pattern: one guest doesn't disrupt our routine that much. We get the one on one time with our friend we were hoping for. Two guests can also be fun: they have each other to entertain themselves if we have plans, errands or work that we have to take care of. Three guests means four for dinner, a nice even number. More than that though and suddenly, the house feels crowded.
What's your rule when it comes to guests?
