by David Frist from Amanda Lee's THREAD RECKONING
Hey, there. I'm David Frist. I used to be engaged to Marcy Singer, who runs that little embroidery shop called the Seven-Year Stitch on the Oregon coast. We were supposed to tie the knot a little over a year ago, and I guess you could say my feet turned to ice the night before the wedding was to take place. I'm not proud of what I did. I know Marcy was really hurt when I bailed on her at the last minute. I couldn't even bring myself to tell her--I had my best man Tony do it. And, man, did he give me a hard time over it!
David, what you did was horrible. Marcy had to come out in her wedding gown--looking gorgeous, I might add--to tell her guests...and yours...that you weren't there. And after an hour of calling everyone and every place we could think of looking for you, you text me to say, "Tell Marcy I'm sorry but I just can't do it, man"? Do you know what a jerk you are?
Needless to say, Tony and I aren't all that close anymore. You're probably thinking I'm a creep too. But after moving from one unsatisfying job to another and going through a string of girls, I realize I had a really good thing with Marcy. In fact, I'm on my way to Oregon to bring her back home to San Francisco where she belongs.... With me.
So what about you? Do you believe in second chances?
