The Return of the COW*
We stayed home and sent a gift from the registries that accompanied the invitation.
The wedding did come off -- I saw photos galore posted on Facebook. But I never heard from the bride.
A few weeks ago, I finally sent her a message on Facebook, asking if the gift had been received, saying that if it had not, I would have to deal with the department store and my credit card company.
After a week or so, I sent a duplicate Facebook message.
Today I received a response:
Sorry for not replying earlier!! Forgive me!! It did come! We appreciate the thought even though you were unable to join us! Thank you Nancy! Thank Joe for us too!
Moooooo. COW* here. Sure, honey, you're forgiven. But don't go sending me a baby announcement.
