Honor your RSVP

waitress on broadwayIf you RSVP “yes” – show up. Decided today’s tip would be the email I received from the head of a Broadway investment group: A block of production tickets can’t be returned or exchanged. If you commit and then cancel with little notice, I need to charge you for the tickets. The same holds true for dinners. If we commit a specific number to the restaurant and then you drop out, we need to charge your investor account. This is why we reconfirm your ticket and dinner commitment multiple times.

Last minute cancellations due to an unforeseen emergency – such as the floods we are having in Houston this week – can’t be helped and are understood. Otherwise, show up and honor your word. By the way, if you know a flood victim in Houston, here is a simple list of things you can do to help. I wrote it a year ago for Huffington Post but it holds true today. We did fine – thanks for asking.

2015-04-13 20.41.12It’s also been almost a year since three students at the University of Texas beautifully summed up Alzheimer’s disease with a 5-day grade project art exhibit – with a pink parachute, yarn, Christmas lights, and memories. I finally could sit down and edit it all together. It’s long. Watch it here or save this link for later, pour a really big glass of wine, and watch Eye See … I Forget. And, pick up a copy of Surviving Alzheimer’s with Friends, Facebook, and a Really Big Glass of Wine – in paperback and Kindle from Amazon.
