We in the northern parts of town, were not invited, but that didn’t stop us. We were preparing for our first PINK NOORD PICKNICK. [I know in the US you would write it as a picnic, but every country has its own way of spelling it. Even between UK English and US English are big differences!] This picknick will happen later today at the Noorderpark.
I still have to drain the cucumber slices, slather slices of bread with a dressing and put deli meats, salmon, cucumber and sweets on them. The blush wine is still cooling and so is the bubbly, buttermilk, cheeses, salads, olives and soda. I will take them out at the last moment. Paper plates, plastic cutlery and strong drinking glasses are already packed. Including pepper and salt shakers and also important, but not on a slice of bread, a parasol and blanket.
Of course all of this is far too much for me alone, one slice of bread and a glass of milk is enough, but to attract others you just have to feed them.
I have no idea what the turn out will be, at least the other team members will be there with their partners and maybe some friends as well. And when it’s a no-show of the others… then it’s their problem, not mine.
