A COUPLE whose dinner guests cancelled at the last minute experienced the kind of euphoria normally only achieved with recreational drugs.
Tom and Jen Booker started dreading the social arrangement and would have cancelled if they were not needy people pleasers.
Tom Booker said: “After a massive weekend I was dreaming about a takeaway and Netflix when I remembered we were having Nathan and Emma over for dinner.
“I immediately got this sinking feeling I imagine criminals get when they’re sentenced. I reminded Jen and she started smashing a large butternut squash on the kitchen counter.
“At six o-clock they cancelled by text and instantly we both started dancing and whooping totally high on the deep joy of a cancelled social engagement.
“We were pinging so hard we felt like calling people over to share the buzz with. Ironically Nathan and Emma were our first thought.”
Emma Bradford, the dinner guest who cancelled, said: “It’s a real shame, we felt dreadful about cancelling and almost didn’t do it but we were really hungover and just couldn’t be fucked.”
