We must be permitted to inturupt our daily programing for this brief announcement:
My fellow women, friends, and co-consumers, it is my unplesant appointment to publicize a chocolate shortage. Yes, the chocolate industry is facing a crisis. Please do not panic. Please remain calm. This is not a joke. This should not be taken lightly. Please restrict any desires to stock-pile. Should an industry shortage occur, rationing will be implemented and strictly adhered to by the Department of Chocolate Security. As the director this honored institution, I promise to keep all Snickers Bars, all six-layer chocolate cakes, all chocolate shakes, and all the other chocolate products safe. It is my humble promise to you. Thank you, and God bless.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programing.
It was good to see lots of family and friends that I wouldn' t noramally see. The whole wedding brought to mind some memories of other weddings. Here's to you, Jake and Meika, I hope every part of your wedding day was as pleasant for you as it came off to your guests:
Recollections of Wedding Days
- My own wedding day began by scrambling eggs. Yes, I made breakfast for everyone who stayed with my parents on my own wedding day. Shocking? I should hope so.
- Peggy's wedding day was the first time in my life that I was allowed to wear tinted lip gloss (I was twelve-years-old and just dying - with as much drama as possible - to wear anything colored).
- Sarah and Justin's wedding day was spent trying to talk to Brian (whom I hadn't seen in at least 4 weeks - which I was pretty sure would kill me).
- I spent my cousin Wendy's wedding torn with vanity as to which was better, my shoes or my dress (I was the flowergirl - vanity kicks in at an early age).
- Lisa and Mick's wedding day was the last day of my life before I started college, the next day, armed with $500 worth of books, 17 blisters (from my very snazzy, and very uncomfortable shoes), and the anxious giddiness of a freshman, I started college.
- Brooke's wedding was Brian and my first official road-trip. It was no shorter than 13 hours one way (which we spent listening to a book on tape - which, believe it or not - lasted pretty close to the entire trip).
- The evening of Beth's wedding was spent in a steaming hot shower for 40 minutes with a brush and a bottle of conditioner (it's amazing how tangly my hair gets when it's professionally done - it always looks so neatly arranged).
Ahh, yes. The things that are going on in everyone's minds at weddings. It's interesting. You know, how I don't associate Mick and Lisa's wedding with their marriage, I associate it with when I started college. It's amazing how we live in our own little spheres and situations are all sifted through the little atmospheres of our own little worlds and inturpretted accordingly. And people say that we're not selfish creatures... :)
