"Best Wishes!" she said to me. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was walking in a local mall with my mother and we ran into a long time family friend. My mother updated her on the news that I was recently engaged, and whilst oggling at the ring, she exclaimed "Best Wishes!". I had never heard this before and when our brief encounter ended, my mother explained to me that she was correct in saying that as opposed to "Congratulations".
