We have a friend. We'll call him Jeremy. When we first met Jeremy we were invited to his house for a party--and it was a good one. But when we were there we noticed this piece of paper behind a glass cabinet...
Sure, we've made plenty of lists for parties before but this one is unique. This list doubles as a detailed diagram of the party venue (in this case, his apartment). Wanting to make sure that there was proper seating for all of his guests, he sketched out the number of people that could comfortably hang out (21-24 to be exact). We kind of love this. Not only is it a list with essential items (food to be bought, where the drink station will live, who's invited, etc.), it's also a memento. A reminder of an eventful evening with close friends and new aquaintances. It's a blueprint of his old apartment if he ever happens to move. Plus, the drawing would look super neat behind a frame--instant conversation piece.
