A good friend of mine is getting married this year. Apparently he already told me the date, but it might as well not be the case. At least I didn't find any traces of it in my email. Note that if he sent it to my work email, it is most certainly gone, because I kill personal email after a while to save space on the tiny exchange repository that I have.
Anyway, today he wanted to know if the invitation had arrived already. Well, no it didn't, but he mentioned that it was the 30th August. Fuck... Just plain in the middle of my Tuscany vacation and I would have loved to go.... but I can't cancel the Tuscany vacation: it's all already paid for. I think they chose that date on purpose: 30th August is the last day of the summer vacation in Belgium. The probability that everyone is back is higher. Alas, I don't live in Belgium and the summer vacation is shifted two weeks... The last summer vacation day is 14th September here.
This is the second time this happens: I just suck at timing it seems.
Oh, well, on the positive side, it means two less meals for them to pay for.... Money saved.
I do feel bad about it....
