I'm in my Ready Room and Riker walks in; he can see I'm busy, so I know it's question-and-answer time.
"Hi Captain" he says, "What are you doing?"
What does he think I'm going to say? The waltz?
"I'm planning a party to take place here on the Enterprise in Ten Forward this weekend, Number One."
"That's great" he replies, "I always love to be involved in any party."
"We won't be involved in the party, except perhaps watching from the sidelines."
"So who will be in the party?" asks Riker, rather puzzlingly. The reason he likes parties is it's a chance to eat any fattening foods that are there.
"The people in our Guest Quarters; this weekend, the 200th post in my Journal will have been reached, and I want to make sure that our guests have a good time."
"You're not going to bring a crate of Bajoran '29 are you?" Riker worringly asks, "Only I remember you had that when you reached the 100th entry, and it took us all a week to get you sober again."
I think for a moment and recall the incident. I've tried to forget about that and decide to cancel that off the forthcoming drinks list.
"Err..no, Number One, I won't have any of that around."
"Do you think our Guests might be any trouble?" Riker asks me.
"I don't think so, Number One; make sure Mr Worf and his Security team are close to hand, though, we want it all to go smoothly."
I send out a personal invitation to appear on their screens in their Quarters.
I hope this won't be a mistake.
