Thanks, y'all. Gotta say, leftover pot roast of contrition sandwiches are a great breakfast, too. LOL
I must say, in her defense, that this is an isolated 'duh' for her - she's usually good about asking me. I think it was a combination of excitement at seeing her friend, excitement that she COULD have this opportunity to spend a lot of time with her, and the pain meds she was on for that broken tooth extraction that led her to be a twit. She has apologized again, and appears relieved that the fire marshal said no for her (the call to her friend was short, polite, cordial, and is DONE).
I appreciate all the good energy that came our way. One more hurdle or so, and we're in the clear for a bit. :-)
