and guest

the kind of crap part about remaining single is the "and guest". I got a wedding invite in the mail recently with the nice "and guest" on it. Which is probably one of the worst invites for "and guest". For a funeral maybe I could invite an "and guest" but putting it on a wedding invite is just a underhanded reminder that "hey we're happy (for now) but we know you're lucky to put up with yourself, let alone con someone else to being with you, so just....don't bring an escort."

"And guest" is just an insulting reminder that if you were to choke on a piece of eggplant, nobody would know anything is wrong until the neighbors start smelling something weird.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the invite, especially if there's an open bar, but it's disconcerting that my friends have a more optimistic view of my social life than I do.
