How do you determine the difference between a guest and someone close enough to call family or close friend- you know when you don't know someone well enough to let them help fix dinner or whatever it is you're working at.
I've decided that the way I can tell if someone is a guest at my house or if they fit into the friends/family category- and its really kind of strange but a good indicator for me.
If I feel comfortable enough with someone to let them look in my fridge, they are no longer merely guests.
I know- slightly crazy- but most of the time I keep my house clean enough to let visitors in and not feel embarrassed about it, but the fridge is a whole other realm of my house.
Filled with leftovers, no particular organization, and occasionally something in there hidden in the deepest bowels that is growing mold strong enough to kill a bacterial infection.
Not many people get to venture that far into my world, most are purely guests
