Christine Greenslade tried to reconnect with some childhood friends, and was shocked to learn that, due to a misprinted obituary, they thought she'd been dead for 30 years!!!

In 1980, Christine's mother passed away, but the local paper screwed up and reported Christine's death.

Christine, who lived abroad, never read the misprinted paper.

So imagine her friend's surprise when they got a call from a dead woman inviting them to drinks 30 years later! :fun:
