Funny how we knew Heather would use some excuse (or is that an excuse you concocted together) about something being wrong with her car before we ever left. I was going to say something about that to you but knew you would think I was crazy for even thinking she would try something like that. She is just so predictable. Guess she found a way to stick it to me for her not being on this cruise. You don't think it's odd that you supposedly haven't spoken to her in 2 weeks but as soon as I am gone her car starts running rough. Not sure why her car running rough warranted eating dinner with you and Molly anyway. You can be her savior all you want. I would hate for her to have to find her own mechanic and deal with her own problems without running to you about it. As far as coming to you about it, I have come to you for months about how I didn't want Molly with her and we see that doesn't matter. You can't respect me enough to not be around her. You have a friend or whatever she is to you that obviously is so important or desirable to be with enough that you can't cut her out of your life. I get it. I see that I am asking you to give up a male friend who you have had for years, someone who has been in your life forever and means a lot to you. Oh wait, no it's female who was a friend of mine not yours anyway! That's fine. And don't worry, this won't ruin my trip. I now know where I stand and will deal with it when I get home.
