After much thought (and frank stewing) I sent an email to the neighbor of the “Princess Diarrhea” incident stating my feelings about what she said. She replied this afternoon with a sincere apology (and a small amount of flattery for my husband and myself.) I appreciate that and I am much reassured. I’ve encountered way too many people in her position who would have not only refused to apologize but would try to make me out as crazy for calling it out. As it is, it turns out that there was a context of a family joke of hers – and obviously, I didn’t know the context. I’m assuming she’s sincere in her statements and giving her the benefit of the doubt. After all, I considered a giant Buddha head in the driveway next to mine as a good sign.
