This that Mr Hollander has plagiarised is not a group of friends at someone's house, it is a church. In the case of the other church, a discussion, it was said afterwards that this was sacred.
I have had to wash out my three saucepans in the last few days after I trod on a slug. The inner solid body section ejected and was motionless, while the outer skin head section was moving. It was horrible. I did the honorable thing and flattened both sections with the sledgehammer. Now I will have to wash that as well. Not all of it, only the solid iron rubberised head part.
