DJâ€™s mom is hosting a shower for me in August, along with two bridesmaids. (The third is out of state and also planning a wedding, so definitely off the hook.) DJ’s mom is really excited about it, mostly because she wants to use a set of girly luncheon dishes she bought some time ago but hasnâ€™t had occasion to use. How cute is that? I love her.
BUT. Sheâ€™s asking me for a guest list, and I am terrified. Itâ€™s not that I have no friends (I do, really.) Itâ€™s not that Iâ€™m stage shy of opening gifts in public (I am, but thatâ€™s not it.)
The thing is â€“ my, this is embarrassing â€“ once I threw a party and no one came. No one! Iâ€™m that girl. People said yes, no one showed.
That canâ€™t happen twice to one person, right? Right? Let’s not even get into my bachelorette/hen party fears.
* To the tune of Thank You For Being a Friend, also known as the Golden Girls’ theme. No wonder no one showed?
