I'm the Mayor of my own Crazy Town. Sheriff, too.
Ha! I weirdly like weddings. Unless I know no one, then I just like the open bar.
His big grin says it all!
Something tells me that most boyfriends would fake a heart attack to get out of going to a wedding, especially if it's not someone he knows. If it's any consolation, you look super cute in your fancy clothes.
Why would you celebrate a wedding? It's no big deal. Any pair of idiots that can say I do, and make 'X their mark' on the documents can get married. Big fancy weddings are a ritual inflicted on the stupid to have them start married life behind the financial 8 ball. Anniversaries now, that's something to celebrate. 10 years together and you can throw a party. Pull out the stops for 25; it's a long time, you're likely to be able to afford it, you can still drink booze and not suffer too much the next day, most of your friends are still alive, your children are likely still trying to be nice to you so you pay for their education, and you can still stay up past 10pm once in a while. 50 should be a big huge event, but there are some difficulties. Some of your friends are dead, your children are more likely to be paying attention to their children, drinking booze will mess up your medications, and staying up past 10pm hasn't happened for decades.
How does he get away with not going to the wedding with you and instead having fun? That's some verbal jiu-jitsu I am not familiar with but want to take classes.
Does he not know the proper man-code? You give your excuse, of course, but you don't rub it in. No, you act really, really sad, and tell her you TOTALLY would have gone otherwise, THEN you grin like an idiot when she's gone off to whatever event you never wanted to go to in the first place. Frankly, I'm in awe of his brazenness.
Yerrite. Willy Dunne Wooters would never go to a wedding with me, but I know it in advance. Love,Janie
Yeah, it's a mistake to grin like that while you are still there. He should save that for after you leave because he has a bad case of diarrhea and can't go. Yeah, that's it.
