How to RSVP if you work in entertainment

Brilliant move, aspiring Tarantino! You have reassured me that you are sooooooooo busy. (You must be important! ) And you’ve reminded me that if you show up, I will be very lucky! And, of course, you’ve cemented the fact that if I should be so lucky, you will need to leave quickly, because you have other places to be, because, again, you are sooooooooo busy! (And sooooooooo important.)
Just so you know, here’s how the rest of the country responds: Yes. Or, perhaps: No. While nowhere near so cool, either of these answers allows the inviter to know how many deviled eggs to make.
