For instance; among other things, Mormons strive to be organized, thoughtful and thrifty. And yet most find it almost impossible to RSVP for an event. Ever. Why is that? Surely, it helps when organizing an event to know how many will be in attendance? If one has ever hosted an event, it is quite easy to remember being in such a position, standing in the isles of a party store wondering if one package of napkins will suffice or if two are in order. It would be thoughtful to spare someone the guessing game by giving them a short phone call with a yay or a nay. And as for thrifty-- well, let's just say there is no need to bake 24 cupcakes if 12 will do just fine.
This is not meant to be a tirade. I've been guilty of such infractions myself. But it's been on my mind this week as I've been preparing for Little Miss C's birthday. We sent out 20 invitations. Half have RSVP'd.
The half that isn't Mormon. :)
