Sometimes, you just know

I had a feeling.

When a friend from college - who I knew from skating - started calling me. And calling and calling. I knew what she wanted.

She got engaged in the fall.

We were never, by my standards, good friends. We skated together. She came to my graduation party. We saw 13 Going on 30 at the theater. But we were never good friends.

Until I saw her at the competition I did back at in early March, it had been nearly a year and a half since I had seen her.

It was nice seeing her, sure. And we exchanged an email or two after, yes.

But we're not good friends.

And I shouldn't have been invited to stand up in her wedding.

But I was.

I don't really see how I can say no. It would be a horrible rejection, having someone refuse to be in your wedding. And it would be a horrible thing, if you didn't have enough good friends or family members to fill your wedding party.

I am choosing to be flattered.

I am choosing to say yes.

Wow! And eek.

Good for you, though, for being there for her.

In case you didn't know, I actually met K at a wedding. I was a bridesmaid, and he was a groomsman. These things can turn out to be pretty good!

Well maybe you could become good friends? I'd take it as a compliment. :)

That's sweet of you, yes it would be hard to say no. But who knows? You might meet someone at this wedding.....
