Do you ever those days? Not THOSE days, but the more surrealist ones?
So bassgrrl got married today. I know because not only did I wear pantyhose I also signed some papers witnessing her love for her man and her permanent commitment. Except the epic flooding it was a lovely wedding and I’m so so so glad I came up for it. In addition to standing up with her at the ceremony I saw lots of people I haven’t seen in forever and ate cake and had very good time. The only downside, I couldn’t get up the gumption to give a toast, because seriously, there have never been two people more perfect for each other in the world and I should have taken the opportunity to comment on it publicly. High points of the day include, the groom going to change (in closet) and someone walking into the church and announcing, “we can’t start until the groom comes out of the closet.” And during the little rehearsal to make sure we all knew where to walk, the minister said, “and then you’ll turn to everyone and I’ll declare you Mr. & Mrs. Robinson,” and my mom declared loudly from a back pew, “You’re going to be Mrs. Robinson?” Hehehe… Here’s to you, indeed.
After my mom and I took leisurely drive home down back highways in the rain. Then my mom randomly offered to take me shopping. I got shoes (red) and pants and maybe an awesome hoodie (we got it for my sister, who might not like it, so I’m supposed to, on mom’s instructions, show it to her and if she’s jealous and likes it I have to give it to her, if she’s fairly indifferent I get to keep it).
Then we came home and my dad had said my cousin Joe was coming over, because he was in town for Navy ROTC competition. Well Joe came over. With SIX of his ROTC buddies. They stopped by, just to say ‘hi.’ But my family being what they are, my mom was looking out the front window as they all piled out of the van. Normal people would be all WTF? My mom’s first response? “I hope we have enough liquor.” Yeah. So they came by to say ‘hi,’ but instead my mom made them all dinner, served them high-end scotch and Bombay Sapphire g&ts and let them all hang out all night. They were all cute and smart too. So I spent my evening drinking heavily in mom’s living room while having a great conversation with a bunch hot Navy guys. Yeah.
K may have had a fantastic day, certainly off the charts in goodness, but I think I held my own in joy for the day.
