Floored Tip of the Day
Sometimes the most natural place to set your beverage or food item at a party is on the floor. You'll think to yourself, "I'll remember it's there, I won't kick it over," which may be true, however, keep in mind that at a party, there are several (hopefully) other people there who did not see you set down your soda, milk, or stew, that did not think "I'll remember it's there, I won't kick it over, or sit in it, or mash it into a blanket." The result? You have about a quarter of your slop remaining because your eyes are definitely bigger than your stomach, and who wants to get up for seconds in the middle of a movie? Then, an unsuspecting party-goer flops down a husband-pillow or blanket RIGHT into stew, panics, thinks it's vomit, and ends up doing laundry! So, just set your stuff on the nearest coffee table, end table, or the like. You'll be spill-free and not wearing any of your food or beverage. But also, look out for people who have NOT read this tip! Just because you haven't left food or drink on the floor doesn't mean others haven't also!
