It's my friend's birthday soon & this week I got a happy little Facebook invite to the party.
One of my other friends just quit Facebook so I gave her the info and rsvp'd for her.
On Friday she came over, we dressed up in stripes, as requested, and headed over to the party.
Me: Which floor is it? 4? Or 5?
Friend: Mmm…not sure.
Ok, we guessed 5 and went up.
Got out of the lift.
Not this one.
Must be level 4.
We got to their door.
And were confused.
Friend: Is this the right house?
Me: It should be...
It looked like their house…but it was dead quiet.
And there was only one pair of shoes.
Which is very odd for a party that started an hour ago.
Friend: But they look like her shoes?
Me: And I recognise their door hanging. Then where is everyone?
Friend: Maybe they all went out? Call them?
Me: I don't have his number.
Friend: No answer.
Just then we turned to see the party couple in question, walking up behind us.
They saw stripes.
They saw gift.
Bday Friend 1: It's not today.
Bday Friend 1: It's on the 28th.
Friend: Mat Salleh!! I don't have Facebook anymore, she told me it was today!
Me: Really? I thought it was today!
Bday Friend 2 whips out his smart phone to show the invite and prove the point.
Bday Friend 1: See? This coming Friday (28th).
Me: Oh…I just read "this coming Friday" and ignored the date...
In my defence, that is slightly confusing…
Us: Ok bye then, see you in 2 weeks!
