I want to crash a wedding before I die
New brides everywhere are probably crinkling their noses and flipping their hair at me, but that's okay-I get it-you ladies are new to the "getting married" scene. But I simply love a good old fashioned wedding-the mixing and mingling of family upon family, friend upon friend. It's like an orgy for people who like to socialize! We can all learn a little something from a wedding. First of all, a wedding always brings us back to those first days of innocent love and it makes everyone attending believe in love again. It gets us to cling to our date's arm, and get swept away on the dance floor to that stupid chicken dance, clucking and winging ourselves away like the idiots that we are. It gets us to touch up our makeup in the restroom after we watch the father-daughter dance. It gets us to rest our head on the shoulder of a strange uncle of the bride during a "sway around the couple as they dance" moment. It brings out all those emotions that are hidden beneath the heap of everyday life. It brings on the four lettered word called LOVE which makes us all happy and mellow.
So, as I approach 35 and realize that so few of my friends remain to get married and I'm a guest on so few wedding lists these days, I want to crash one. It may not be today, it may not be next month-but I will make pretend that I am "cousin Michelle from upstate New York" at some wedding in my near future. Names and locations may change-but IT WILL HAPPEN before I die.
