Good Guests

What makes a good house guest?

Well, one who doesn't hog all the hot water. One who appreciates the accommodations the host provides and the amount of effort it took to prepare for his arrival. One who spends most of the time available with the host, i.e. doesn't use the house as a hotel. One who comes prepared to have a good time and adds to the fun by his presence. And, while it's not necessary at all, it doesn't hurt if he brings the hostess a nice present, does it?

So, when My Fairy Godson arrived last week with his pal in tow, guess who passed muster as a great house guest! Yes, the buddy, whose name is Mister.

Here is half of what he brought by way of hostess gift - a fun pumpkin and spice muffin mix with a jar of pumpkin pecan butter cleverly packaged with four colorful rubber spreaders and tied with a pretty bow. I can tell I'll be making muffins or pumpkin spice bread for Thanksgiving. His timing is impeccable; so are his manners. He even left a nice thank you note for me to find on his pillow when I went to change the sheets.

My Fairy Godson has good taste in friends; a guest like that is welcome any time he cares to come.

"One who spends most of the time available with the host, i.e. doesn't use the house as a hotel." That sort of houseguest rarely gets asked back - though for family we tend to be the M&M B&B :)

Ms Mouse, you're right - there are different rules for family. :-)
