First! The foster group got an email from Sammy and Deli's new parents - They are both doing fine and are busy exploring their new home - they've even made friends with the family's golden retriever. Way to go, kids! Also, send kind thoughts to Romeo and Mouse, who are going to the vet today to have their *ahem* snip-snip done. Sorry, guys, but trust me - it's for the best.
Now, on with the story.
I had to run downtown the other day to pick up some papers from a client. I go into his office suite and explain my purpose to the receptionist, who goes and gets the client's secretary, who comes out with the paperwork. I turn around, start back through the offices, and hear someone call out, "Hey Rocky!*"
It's a woman who I SWEAR I had never seen before in my life.
"How have you been?!" she asks.
"ummmm, great!" I reply. "How have YOU been?", frantically searching my brain because oh my God who IS this woman?
"Oh, I've been good," she says, "Are you coming to the Christmas party?"
"Gee, I don't know!", I say. Is it someone new from the foster group? A neighbor's kid? Someone I used to know from someone else's office who is now working for this client? Who IS she?
"Oh, you've GOT to come," she says, describing the party.
"Well", I say, "Sounds like I'd better not miss it, then!"
"Okay, see you later!", she says, as I make my exit.
You know, it sounded like kind of a lame party, anyway. Just as well that I won't be there.
*Not my real name.
