I’ve been invited to three parties so far this holiday season. I’ve just found I can’t attend two of them because of family commitments. I don’t know about the third, because it’s date hasn’t been set yet.
Stupid me for not keeping a calendar.
Stupid family for it’s penchant for getting pregnant nine months before the holiday season.
Stupid holidays for making all the opportunities to get together with friends cluster into a couple of tightly-packed weeks.
Happy frigging Hannukah.
