Me and Maria knew it was gonna happen, but you can imagine the excitement around Casa Goomba when we opened yesterday's mail and, hidden within a stack of Land's End catalogues and MasterCard bills, there was a purple and cream velour envelope containing our invitation to the big event.
Maria immediately gave Billy and Kate a quick e-mail to find out where they're registered. I said, "Are you nuts? This trip is gonna cost us a fortune as it is. Just rewrap that Panashiba iPod knock-off your cousin Carla dumped on us at Christmas. Who's gonna know?"
Good news: I was worried about renting a tux, but the invitation gives me the choice of wearing a "lounge suit". Whew! That makes it easy. I have a classic in the closet.
