So BG’s mom cannot make it! She’s in Florida and seemed both genuinely glad I asked and sad she couldn’t come. So I’m glad I worked up the nerve to ask even though it made me nervous.
As an aside, one of my friends just found out that the guy she has been dating for the past 4-5 months is secretly married! He’d told her his ex-wife died years ago. Not sure how she found out, but his “ex-wife” is alive and well and lives locally, and they are in the middle of a divorce. I met him about two months ago and he seemed nice enough, so I’m pretty shocked to hear he’s shady. I guess some of the people closest to her are telling her to move past the lies, but I couldn’t get past made up dead ex spouses. Good grief.
