Follow-up Post

I would hate for this story to be keeping anyone up at night, dying of curiosity for an ending, so here the ending is! Less than a week after the flowers were delivered, I received the following note:

"Dear Gabriela,
You are very kind. Thank you for the lovely flowers. It is I who should be sending you flowers in light of my moot boorish behavior. I would enjoy having you and your children over to swim in our pool some afternoon.

Warmly, ..... (with phone #)"

I think the bad blood has evaporated and we're ready to start anew! Do you think it's too soon to ask for my own personal key to the pool?!!


  1. oh my goodness that is the cutest picture of your kids!

    and great fabulous ending. just shows everyone has a bad day... some worse than others ;)

  2. Ah, a happy ending! Thanks to you, you now have a happy neighbor. You are a great example to me!

  3. Alexus had a competition on Sat. I seriously almost punched a lady in the face. Next time I will channel my inner Gay....Thank you for reminding me how grown ups act.

  4. You are a woman to admire my friend. Kill em' with kindness, works (almost) every time. :)

    This story really is one of my favorites. I just may have to be re telling it in years to come!

  5. a good reminder that nobody can resist someone being kind...and look where being nasty back would have gotten pool access!

  6. How funny, I was just wondering the other day what had happened with the flowers. Way to take the high road, and what a great response from her.

  7. I am now caught up to date... What a story and well handled. Love, Em
