I insist that you can. Friend insists that you only have excellent buffets or dire buffets.

I've had lots of averages.

But my average could be another woman's dire so who really knows??

i'd say average was the norm

and the excellent/dire the exceptions

Yep, average is the norm.

You can have an average anything which sits on a scale. Great buffet- organic 100% pork artisan sausages. Dire - Iceland econorange frozen bangers. Average- Richmond oe equivalent sausages.

Hmmmm. I'm with your friend. To make it even more complicated a proper buffet involving Sandwiches and Sausage Rolls and Potato Salad id done right, excellent. All you can eat restaurants ALWAYS dire

Average: lukewarm greasy sausage rolls

There's Dire. There's Excellent.There's middle ground -Average.

Your friend is barmy either easily pleased or hyper critical grin

IME all buffets are average. I've never had an excellent or dire one.

In my experience there is only dire or average! But I just really don't like buffets, unless at someone's house - and some breakfast buffets at hotels are ok...

I went to an Italian-Scottish wedding once and the buffet was knock-your-socks-off.

Little buffet lunches when you visit people tend to be excellent. Weddings and funerals are dire.

I also LOVE hotel breakfasts. I have about ten courses. DH likes to pretend he is European and have one black coffee.
