OHHH! I did not mean to step on any toes with that comment. But Folks the truth of this fact is, it's the Soccer/Football World Championships this June and we in Germany are hosting it. So, while Beckham, Ballack and Co. are getting ready for the big kick off, I thought what better theme to kick off my first Monthly Mingle.
I know this can be a point of huge frustration for some, while partners sit glued to the screens all summer long, screaming, shouting and cursing. It could be a lot worse than watching 22 more or less cute guys run after a ball, right?
Imagine this: I have invited you all to my place for the hottest final ever (Germany vs ???). You all just have to bring one dish along to the potluck that you think fits in this theme. Whatever you like! It can be a national dish of your country or a dish from the country of your favorite team - something that will represent team spirit and is fun to eat at big gatherings.
I have a barbecue you can use, an oven and a microwave. And I also have a buffet table a kilometer long that needs filling. Besides the dish, a little story telling is always good and I'd like to hear what you think about football/soccer and any stories about your family/friends that fits the theme. Don't need a novel, just a few lines, paragraphs will do. This is the party of the month!
Party starts May 1, so email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is June 9, when the first match kicks off, here. I will do the round-up on the weekend of June 10, when I shall also announce the theme of the next Monthly Mingle.
Look forward to having you over!
