You have all been friends since high school and you thought they were your ‘ride or die’ pals but lately you been browsing on Instagram and they seem to be partying as usual but you obviously did not get the memo as to when and where. What could possibly be wrong since you did not have any fights or falling outs recently but you definitely feel slighted by their recent exclusion of you.
The “outside” child
I was once part of a wedding where everyone but the father of the bride knew that the little toddler running around was the child of the groom. He just naturally assumed the baby belonged to a guest. His daughter did not want to inform him as it would have been another strike against the groom who was significantly older than her so she chose not to say anything at all to her father. It all nearly came to a head when the photographer wanted a family photo and so the bride quickly decided that it was the perfect time for a bathroom break and since the dress was long and cumbersome it would take a while to get that done. In reality, was her way of taking as much time as possible for everyone to get restless and wonder off so there would be no family portrait with the little boy included.
