Susan hates to answer the door.
Once it's opened, that's it, she's stuck with whoever's standing there; drunk neighbors, political pollsters, teenagers selling magazines, costumed children seeking candy. She hates all of it.

This is not to be confused with the Drop In. Susan loves the Drop In. Please, drop in anytime. She hates to hear Oh, I was going to drop in but I didn't. Please, drop in!
Call ahead, don't call ahead, whatever.
Although, she wouldn't mind if you gave her ten minutes notice to clean the toilet.

Susan's not going to mention NaBloPoMo. Maybe she'll do it, maybe she won't. It'll be exciting to find out what she decides.

When I answer the door I take the toilet brush with me.

I don't answer the door. EVER. Tonight, I turned off all the lights, made myself a stiff V & T, and hid in the kitchen watching football until the costumed-rug rats all went away.

I answer the door with a wine bottle. If Susan participates in NaBloPoMo, don't forget she can post all her favorite recipes.

We must be twins. I hate to answer the door. I also hate to call an order in for delivery. I don't know why.

But I do love a drop in!! I always have wine ready and usually can whip up a snack.
