To: Fellow Cary audience members
My deepest apologies to those who overheard my joking but ill-timed comment (about "little old ladies") which was directed to my boyfriend as we left the Cary show. I was teasing him as we tried to hold hands while carrying our chairs, and realized after speaking that I had offended our neighbors sharing the path to the parking lot. I am so very sorry for that sour note at the end of a lovely evening!
—Sally Moseley
