PETERSON: A lot of people come over to Denise’s?
FREY: Um..quite a few. Um…
FREY: I’m a little um..upset about a couple people that didn’t show.
PETERSON: Really, who?
PETERSON: Oh, really?
FREY: She called me early that morning and just said um..you know, Shawn…I..to say Happy Birthday. But I didn’t really ask Denise or I thought she said whe was coming or I don’t know if she said one way or another, but she never came and um…
PETERSON: That’s not right.
FREY: I don’t know.
PETERSON: She’s better than that.
FREY: I don’t know what’s going on with that because I still haven’t heard from her, but of course now my phone’s been out for two days. But she could have called me still later that day and told me why she wasn’t going.
PETERSON: That’s ridiculous, she’s a better person that that. She must be embarrassed.
FREY: And um..also um..(sigh) Famous had said uh…asked something about the invitation and I said..I said, “What invitation?” She said..he’s like, “The wedding invitation.” I said, “I don’t know. I didn’t get one” And he was surprised. He said, “I got mine like a month or a couple months ago” And I said “Really?” And uh..or I think it was last month. And then Denise’s husband asked me..let’s see or uh..said uh..did you get..something about the invitation and I went, you know, “I don’t know, I didn’t get one|” Um…I just thought that maybe he got his early, but I guess everybody got one but me. Um..I go, “I don’t know, I haven’t heard anything” And he goes, “Well, we’re not going either then”. So I don’t know.

PETERSON: Well, it makes me think it..I mean was it because of the whole..?
FREY: I..I really don’t know and I’m not gonna go out of my way at this point. She disappointed me not coming to my birthday so..
PETERSON: I know. She’s a better person that that.
FREY: So um..
PETERSON: I’m sorry, Amber
FREY: So when I said something Denise was like, “Amber, just don’t worry about it. Have a good time and, you know, um..just don’t worry about it. Your..the people are here that..it’ll..is all that matters so..”
PETERSON: Yeah. You had a fun time then?
