The Dinner Party

She hosted a rather odd dinner party.
It was a party of "ic's" and "ist's".

The Procrastonist RSVP'd at the last minute,
And showed up late.

The Optimist just knew they'd get a coveted invitation,
And looked forward to the event.

The Pessimist assumed it would be a disastrous party,
But showed up with a bowl of sour grapes.

The Hopeless Romantic got lost on the way,
She couldn't see through her rose-tinted glasses.

The Elitist didn't bother to show,
Even though they had nothing to do that night.

The Critic was so consumed by making mental notes,
He forgot it was a party... occupational hazard.

The Antagonist brought a suspicious potion,
And stirred up trouble.

The Fatalist knew that trouble was inevitable,
And showed up waiting for it to all play out.

The Narcissist made it known to everyone
That he was the life of the party.

The Fanatic bought into what the Narcissist was selling,
And fawned all over him.

The Agoraphobic politely declined,
She was afraid to leave her home.

The hostess knew there'd be a 50/50 chance the party would be a success.
After all, she had to be Realistic...

Well.....you get the Gist.

    5. I'm not an Anarchist, but you can always invite one. I recommend Guy Fawkes. And you'll need entertainment. The Violinist, The Flutist, The Pianist, The Cellist. Never, under any circumstances, invite a Percussionist.

  2. Fun, and very clever. I like the pessimist showing up with a bowl of sour grapes.

    1. Thanks, Fishducky! And to think, my parents were worried I'd grow up to be a Nudist!

    1. I've had such great replies to this post I should probably open it up and ask people to tell me who to invite and why (or not to invite and why).
