A Richness of Embarrassment, the Epilogue

Yes, the story has an epilogue.

Last weekend, Emily and I were invited to a wedding reception. Very posh, with the creme de la creme of local Chinese society in attendance.

Over at the next table was a familiar face, a very familiar face. Emily and I walked over to her. I smiled sheepishly.

Emily nudged me to speak. I nudged her back. The woman eyed us curiously.

"Ah, hi, June," Emily said, "You know about last Monday...."

The woman's face lit up. "IT'S YOU!" she shrieked, and then she giggled.

"I'm sorry about that," I mumbled.

"No, no, it was quite all right," she said. Then she turned to her boyfriend: "You know about last Monday...."

And we all had a good laugh about that. At least, I think, we made a friend out of that incident.

I think I'll go look up the man with the German shepherds next.
