The Perfect Hostess

by Anne Deborah Taylor
Originally published by on 04/12/2017

Thelma greeted her guests and sat them at the table. The tomato soup was rich and spicy, the beef Wellington cooked to perfection, with delicious baked Alaska for dessert.

As they ate, Thelma looked somewhat embarrassed as she explained she could only eat salad. She was gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, egg intolerant – in fact, she was just plain intolerant.

As her guests tucked into their meal – laced with rat poison and disguised with the hot food – they couldn’t see Thelma’s suitcase and airline ticket in the hall.

Whoever said revenge was a dish best served cold had never met Thelma.
