Ok. Here goes. Sick of this episode already. John is my boyfriend. We are a COUPLE. If you can bring your other half, I can bring mine. I don’t think it’s fair to make stipulations on who comes where, when. I don’t make that kind of demand on you no matter how I might like/dislike your other half. If he’s not welcome, you can expect me not to show up. You wouldn’t go to a gathering if your other half were specifically not invited, would you? Don’t get me wrong, I do value our friendship, but not at the cost of my happiness, because yes, John makes me happy. Sorry, that’s just the way it’s going to be.

Nomes, I apologise that this has to happen over your birthday celebration, but I am quite sure that you’re going to be totally preoccupied as it is.
