Eduardo and Ericka are friends from church who have invited us to their house a few times for lunch. We thought we would repay them the favor, so we invited them to lunch today after church. At least we thought we had invited them. We said something to Ericka last Sunday, and I called and left a message on Eduardo's phone last night to remind them. They never showed up. We didn't see them at church, and they never called. They missed out on (and I took advantage of) some good baked ziti, salad (not just from the bag-but with added stuff like mushrooms and carrots), fresh bread and brownies. Their loss became my glorious gain.
