Wedding Of The Year!


Carol and Scott got married yesterday. It was one of the most beautiful, kooky, touching, and sincere weddings I have ever been to. Inner Cynic didn’t even come with me. That’s how good it was. We laughed, there were a few tears, and we toasted the couple in style. Our mother would have loved the hell out of the occasion.  I wore her jewelery to bring a little bit of her to the day.  Dad held up all right. His girlfriend is a wonderfully patient woman.

Also: My boobs stayed put in the strapless bra, I did not fall down in heels, I got to see my favourite cousin and his family, and Dad loved the tie I bought him.  Even my erstwhile Ghastly Uncle was merely annoying. And the food was fantastic!

Congratulations, Carol and Scott! You are both amazing people, and I am delighted to know and love you.

    Richard says that at every Mexican-American wedding, there is at least one fight. Obviously, this was not a Mexican-American wedding. It sounds as if everything went according to plan. Congratualtions to the couple.

    We are too WASPy and boring. Everyone on their best behavior. Actually, I have never been to a wedding where there was a fight.I’d sort of like to try one.

    Thanks, all of you. Now, the next wedding I attend should be a Mexican-American one, I think.

    I know a few Mexican-American couples; none of them legally wed (Beth & Richard excepted, I think?) Now I know why!

    Am I the only one who wants to see a picture of Monkeypants in her fancy outfit?
