Nope. They didn't.
The day after I tried calling them I got an email from Brina with the subject line: Pics from the Spring Gala. The body of the email said only, "Enjoy!"
These are the pics she sent:
Right. Well, I guess it slipped everyone's mind to tell me that my entire family was going to NYC Opera's Gala. Nbd.
But then, THIS picture was in the New York Times!

It's sort of a Where's Waldo? situation, but if you look under the white floating art piece, you'll see Sabrina's red dress and my mom standing across from her.
Man! I would have LOVED to be in the New York Times! Blerg.
Anyway, mom, you'll be interested to know that I had a delightful seared striped bass the other night. Thankyouverymuch.
