Pseudo-philosophy is an excellent party trick. And who doesn't love the Cracker Jack prize (even if it's crummy) or get a little bit excited right before they read their fortune in a cookie. Everyone should have a party trick. I had a friend once that could bend her legs up like some kind of pretzel. If you are lacking a trick....try a layer. Something in cranberry chiffon ruffles should do. Here's to parties. Cheers.
