What's Done Is Done, Right?
Dammit!! Arghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! I’ve been such a terrible friend!! I feel sooooooooooo guilty!! Last night, out of the blue one of my ex-schoolmates sent me this text message (and I didn’t even know I had her number can you believe it?),
“Hello Sher, just wanted to know how you were doing. I’m doing okay. Heard from N that you buat open house last weekend. Ooohh tak jemput kita pun. U forgot about lil ol’ me, didn’t you? :-) Just wanted to wish you Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir Batin. Take Care. Regards, S.”
I just came back home from watching Harry Potter & The Gobs of Fire at GSC 1 Utama when I saw that message. *Gulp*. I thought I did invite her. Didn’t I? Oh damn maybe I didn’t! But we weren’t so close anyway so would she really terasa not getting an invitation? S is good friends with N. Why oh why didn’t N extend the invitation to S? I mean I am not really particular who comes to my house anyway. I text N back and told her that I am sorry that I didn’t invite her but it wasn’t on purpose. It’s just that I totally forgot coz I’m old and all. Then I text N and asked her why she didn’t invite S to the house (errmm, not trying to shift the blame here but they are good friends so N must have mentioned about my open house to S). A few seconds later, N replied and said that it was inappropriate for her to invite S coz it was my open house and not hers. Mana boleh simply invite anyone she said. Seriously, I don’t mind at all. It’s Hari Raya anyway and the more the merrier I told her. Argh! Drama at 1.30 in the morning la pulak. N then said that she did mention about my open house to S but S said she doesn’t feel right going since she wasn’t invited. Okay, so I guess me and her haven’t reached that level yet. That level where we can just go to a friend’s house uninvited and raid their fridge.
Sigh. What’s done is done. But I felt really crummy last night. I was so careful not to leave out anyone when I sent out the invitation. Guess I wasn’t careful enough. From her sms, S didn’t sound like she was angry that I didn’t invite her, did she? I mean can you get angry at someone for not inviting you over to their house for makan-makan? Wanted to call her back last night but it was too late already. Maybe I should call her today and explain. Think I should? Arghhhhhhhhhh!!!! Nak balik tido la macam nih!
