Sue W is out host of Weekly prompts Weekend Challenge
“After one look at this planet, any visitor from outer space would say ”I want to see the manager.” ~ William S. Burroughs.
This Week the Weekend Challenge from partner GC and me is Visitors.
Following the long drawn out months of restrictions and lockdowns, many of us are delighted to welcome visitors into our homes once again.
Some of us have been fortunate enough to have had wildlife visit our gardens too.
So, this weekend Gerry and I ask you to share images of your visitors, human or otherwise. Alternatively, tell us about them.
As always the choice is yours, please feel free to interpret the flexible challenge in any way you wish using Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
Please tag #Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge.
Visitors are given much respect in our eastern cultures. They are said to be a blessing from God. Sharing meals or accommodations with them is supposed to bring prosperity to your home.
But the visitors should also behave in a reasonable manner. My pet peeve are those visitors who drop in unannounced and at very inconvenient times. Like there was a couple who would arrive late afternoon, without letting us know about their plans and we were usually caught napping in those long summer afternoons. Same is the case with late night guests or those who drop on weekdays at meal times.
I don’t want to sound ungracious but a little warning of their arrival would be handy! At least I would clean up the living room or hustle something for tea. You see it’s another Asian tradition that we have to at least serve one meal to our guests. Tea with scrumptious snacks or lunch or dinner if it’s that time.
I love this tip!
But family and good friends are welcome anytime. Because one doesn’t have to present a spotless home or three course meal to them. They can come in and sit in your untidy home and partake of what ever you are having. We sometimes order in if we don’t have anything at home. These sort of visitors are welcome anytime, any day.
