I invited the Singers to Miami to have a good time and also to get to know them better. Last minute, I invited Sonja because I thought she just might connect with my father. Contrary to what Heather said at the brow salon, this was not a trip where I invited everyone and excluded one person. I invited two people out of five. I certainly don't think anyone felt left out on this trip. Comparing the London invite to the Miami one is, in my opinion, comparing apples and oranges.
I like to set people up with each other. At the end of the day, if a love match does not happen there is no harm done. Friendships can be made and more setups can come about through the two people who may have just become friends or acquaintances. There is always an upside in meeting new people.
In this case I thought Sonja and my father may hit it off because my father, for starters, is around the same age as Sonja's ex-husband. Sonja and my father are both VERY into sex (or at least they both TALK about sex a lot) and they are both wildly funny. My father is good-looking, well-read, and very animated. At a minimum, I knew Sonja would be entertained and have a good time. At a maximum there would be a match. Usually it's just a dinner and no harm done either way. I also thought Sonja could be a really cool stepmom.
