The terrible vegetable platters and pretzel bowls, the inexplicable sheep-like compliance of the crowd as they file in and out of the room to ‘get fresh air/cake’, the fact that one of the guests has breast cancer and doesn’t seem to actually care about it – this has to be the most depressing party ever.
