    Ah sweet revenge! Those friends and neighbors are about to be taught a lesson Elly-style.

    Awkward BBQ occasion reason. Can’t it just be a regular get-together?

    Don’t worry, Phil. I’m sure Elly will not be so crass as to invite your ex-girlfriend (neighbor Connie Poirier) to her party while you have your current girlfriend there. She has too much respect for you to do that.

    I’ve been in that situation. Pretty much unavoidable at a good friend’s 40th birthday where old Uni. mates are invited. I was invited, with my wife who I met when traveling abroad … My “ex” from Uni. days was also there, recently separated from her husband. We carefully avoided each other all night.

    Just leave that potato salad out in the sun a few extra minutes and you will have a BARBQ the neighborhood won’t forget, alright!

    Ah sweet revenge
    Just out of curiousity, since I keep seeing this theme in so many of your posts, are there are human females you approve of at all, living or dead? (I would guess not…)
