Last Minute Invitation

“You can’t be serious!” the woman exclaimed as she stood up.  She walked across the living room and turned around, “after all this planning now you are not even going to be here for our Superbowl party?”

The man shifted in his seat looking uncomfortable, “He is my boss Diane.  I have to go.  If it was anyone else, I would have just invited them here, but I have a certain image to uphold at work.”

“Your precious image will be tarnished with your friends and family and that is ok, but heaven forbid you look less than perfect for Mr. Paulson.  Just go ahead and renege on your plans, but you better be here to help with the cleanup.”

“Yes Diane, I will.”
