Dear CC: I was invited to my boss's kid's wedding. Do I

really have to go?

CC understands-you're dying to pull the "I'd love to,

you to go. That said, no need to spring for the sterling-silver carving set on

the registry; the cheese spreader should be sufficient. And make sure your date

doesn't down too much champagne, then grind either you or Mrs. Boss on the

dance floor or mention that little suspended sentence/community service deal.
