I really do feel bad about the whole thing though. The bride didn't ask me till last Wednesday (the wedding is Friday the 18th) as my RSVP was late (I was trying to figure out the details of getting there and if I could get off work and the like). I wonder if she had asked me earlier, if I'd have committed? Probably yes, since I wouldn't have looked at the calendar, and realized that my work schedule would make things difficult.
Anyway, I'm off to make some lunch and then go swim . . .
