- Wedding: April 2018
and it isn’t even MY wedding!
Lord help me! My sister and I got together last weekend to brainstorm / organize her wedding stuff, she’s always inspired by my outside of the box ideas AND my ability to line things up and keep them in order is something she’s always admired….well, after the dinner I was more worried about it than she was….there’s so many things still up in the air, it all seems so unregulated and chaotic….now I know that she will pull it together and make it happen HER way, she always does, but for someone like me, her approach is horrifying.
Anyway, it must have bothered me so much, because last night I had a nightmare about the whole thing! It was her wedding day, she looked great, but there’s like twice as many guests as she booked…the venue owner is standing there demanding the money, or he’s going to throw us all out, Mom and Dad are stunned…it’s a HUGE mess! I ask her what happened, what was she thinking, she tells me she didn’t think they would all come, but she invited 300 guests instead of 150, figurind half of them wouldn’t make it. Then she finishes it off with a whopper of a, “It’s MY day”
and that was it…I slapped her….a honest to God, Dynasty style, rattle your teeth and knock your shoulder pads out of your shirt slap….it echoed through the whole place, everyone was stunned for a minute and as she ran away crying, everyone including her fiance starts clapping….Mom and Dad tell the venue guy we dont have the cash, we all decide to go to dinner at a restaurant across the street and my sister and her fiance get married in the parking lot bathed in the ethereal glow of our headlights….
wow…I gotta see someone about this shit
