Communication Malfunction

Dear Short Answers:
Every year for many, many years, my wife and I have been invited to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving.  This year, we did not receive an invitation.  It seemed rude to bring this up to them so we simply made other plans.  The day before Thanksgiving, I ran into my friend who said “see you tomorrow!”  I explained that we had made other plans and could not attend and he was furious.  I think we are completely justified in making other plans.  My wife thinks we need to apologize and send a gift.  What do you suggest?

Dear Jim:
We think it would be a shame to let this misunderstanding come in the way of what seems to be a great and long-term friendship.  Forget the gift, invite them over for hugs.
