Oh believe me, I want everyone to have fun -- and that should be the
ultimate goal. There are several ways however on how to invite more people
to join the 'fun.' We can ask them politely like 'would you like to join the
fun?' or invitingly like 'come join the fun!' I think we should strive for
the latter.
