I think it is very brave of me to try to heal my relationship with Karen, despite how badly she has treated me, but she is fat now and unattractive. I think she deserves a cute friend to give her something to aspire to.
I took out the fruit tray Merlin put together for me yesterday and walked through our backyard, the way I have a million times before and I honestly felt a little teary remembering all of our happy times together.
I could hear her inside talking with someone, so I knocked on the door and guess what? She didn’t even answer. Is that the rudest thing you have ever heard of?
Who does that to a neighbor?
Luckily I found Röbert’s extra Visa card in an old suit jacket in the attic so I ordered her a very lavish arrangement. Let’s see her ignore THAT!
I went by Ty’s house a few times yesterday and he was nowhere to be found. The house was dark and the curtains were all drawn. I waited until it was dark to climb over his fence, so I wouldn’t alarm his neighbors, but there is some kind of automatic light that flipped on.
I then drove by his parents house a few times. I finally parked out front and there was no sign of Ty, but there is a huge Christmas tree blocking my view into the living room. I did see his brother walking Dementor.
So I went home and picked up a tray of my famous home-made cookies to bring to his family. I figured they would invite me in and tell me what is going on.
Everyone always remarks on how clever I am to make such beautiful cookies. I actually buy them from a woman who lives a couple of hours away, so no one knows. If I had time to make cookies they would look like these, only nicer.
I changed into a cocktail dress, just in case they were all gathered for a sip of wine and drove on over. Well, Ty’s mother must have started with the wine a little early because she was so rude to me! She literally slammed the door right in my face. His Dad came out after I knocked a few more times and asked me if I didn’t have a family of my own to “bother”. Excuse me? They have always seemed like such nice people in the past. I tried to step inside with the cookie tray, just to drop it off, but he closed the door IN MY FACE!
I guess they won’t be getting a Christmas card this year.
Right now, as I type, Karen is hosting her annual holiday open house. I think it is the height of rudeness and shows a complete lack of class to invite everyone in your neighborhood except your next door neighbors. I even saw that weird foreign family walking up the driveway with some sort of basket of disgusting ethnic food for her. Cari and Mitch were not invited either, for obvious reasons. I thought that perhaps our invitation got lost, so I walked back and forth in front of her house a few times and, although Karen could clearly see me from where she was standing at her front door, she ignored me. Outrageous!!!!
At first I thought she had hired Mrs. Roper as a celebrity guest, but I was mistaken.
I guess she and Röbert had a bit of a falling out last spring and I am just caught in the crossfire.
Luckily Krystyn was invited and she has been texting us about the party all night. Apparently she got that fab new caterer everyone has been talking about, so the food is amazing but the other guests are lame. Well, good for Karen for trying.
Snakes of a feather flock together I guess. Krystyn said she is there with a new boyfriend; the trainer from the gym we all thought was gay because he never hit on any of us. Apparently he is just religious. LOL.
The boys are both home for their mom’s big night but I happen to know they will be skiing with Mitch and Cari on real Christmas, so I guess poor Karen will be all alone. You reap what you sow.
