Third Times A Charm?

I have dinner plans tonight. Sounds like fun doesn't it? Haha, if only. This particular group of women I know from church. Over two years ago I was invited to one of their girl's nights out. I had a nice time - it was obvious this was a once a month thing - I was never invited again. Okay, I'm busy enough anyway so no big deal.

Fast forward to last October. I have another friend from church who is also friends with this group. (I am the Primary President - we'll save that laugh for another post - so I don't have much interaction with a lot of the women at church on a weekly basis. For those who don't know what that means - I run "kids church".) So, she is invited to join their group. She calls me and gives me the details. We both show up. We wait, we wait, we finally give up and get a table for 2 and eat. Nobody else ever came. Turns out they changed plans when one of them got sick and they forgot to call us.

Now here we are with dinner plans once again. I am invited because it is my friends birthday and I guess they're making an exception and letting me come. The funny thing is I was told where we were eating on Sunday, then received another phone call Sunday afternoon to change the location. THEN yesterday my friend says "no we're not going there we're back to the first place." It seriously wouldn't surprise me if the two of us end up eating dinner alone again. The good thing is I know she'll be there because I'm giving her a ride. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Ah yes, the bait and switch. Hope it goes well - It reminds me, in a distant sort of way, of that scene from Legally Blonde where she shows up in the Playboy bunny outfit to the party. Stay strong!

I don't think you REALLY want to hang with these foofy girls anyway. Sounds like a horrible group.

Let us know - we want ALL the dirt. And I'm glad you have a friend there with you. Eating alone sucks.

lol Lee - they aren't a foofy group - they are OLD. LOL I think that's part of the problem - they see me as being closer to their children's age then to them - and with some of them it is true. Either way - it was a good dinner and everyone showed up at the right place.
