"You never said how Homecoming went?" Roger asked Kyle on his cell while he was waiting for class to let out. He'd hung out at the Student Union as long as he could. He'd bundled up good to make his way across the cold windy campus.
"It came and went." Kyle was so somber.
"You did take Kelsy, didn't you?"
"It would have been hell to pay, other wise. It just wasn't an all night-er or anything. We were well behaved. My Mom stayed with Rosie. You know, nothing new." Kyle told him.
"I guess Amanda's OK?"
"We don't talk much," Kyle said. "But uh, you know, she's busy with classes and a wedding to plan."
"Are you invited?" Roger wanted to know.
"No, are you kidding. Sounds like just his parents and maybe her Dad are the only ones. Its like this parlor wedding. She's not even getting married in the Catholic church."
"Wow, her family is this huge Irish Catholic thing, aren't they?"
"She used to sing in choir and stuff. Probably, my fault, you know, she's no longer a practicing Catholic." Kyle sounded quite himself.
"Well, she's getting married. Maybe it'll work out." Roger tried to be hopeful.
"Yeah, maybe you're right."
"So listen, you guys want to come to, dinner Sunday night?" Roger thought the more the merrier this time of year.
"Is it something special?" Kyle wanted to know.
"Not really, Nick asked Eric over and well, I just thought, the more people we had, the less time I had to spend with him." Roger explained.
"All right, we'll come. Just as long as you haven't invited Amanda and Elliot, that would be a little much." Kyle agreed.
Roger just smiled. Maybe they should think about crashing Amanda's wedding.
