It’s No Party

Dear Short Answers:
For the past 10 years, I have had a big 4th of July barbecue at my house and invited just about everyone I know. This year, I’ve decided to take a year off from all the work. Unfortunately, I’ve heard a couple of people tell me how much they are looking forward to the barbecue again and are planning to attend. Would it be weird to send out a note and tell people that I am NOT having a party? I’m just afraid that some people might just show up and be disappointed (and maybe even angry).

Dear Tired:
Yes it is weird to send out a NO PARTY note. We don’t think people will just “show up” and if the are disappointed, we imagine they will recover. Angry? Oh, please.
