This past weekend I went to a wedding. It was the marriage of my friends Jenn and Jerry. The wedding took place in Western Canada. Not really, it just felt like it because it was far from the city. And it was in the middle of nowhere. Just confirming the fact that I am a city girl, deep down to the bottom of my heart. But I guess I can’t really say anything because you don’t get scenery like this in the city.
Also, I’m just old and I don’t like to drive that far and I get crotchety and complain about traffic and other things old people complain about.
But it was all for naught because I had an awesome time and it was a joyous occasion and I love helping my friends celebrate one of the most important days of their lives.
(Also, a little trivia, I went to a wedding on August 22 of last year and the bride’s name was also names Jennifer. Weird. I just realized that.)
I think I looked pretty hot, if I do say so myself. Chubby chic.
Which went wasted because I spent the whole night dancing with kids and not hitting on the one cute single guy who was in attendance. Apparently he was a cousin and I caught him giving me the eye (and not the stink eye that I usually get), but yet I decided to drink wine and shake my ass on the dance floor. With people under the age of 12.
Although, I’m sure I had more fun doing that, judging by the soreness in my calves, still two days later.
But all the little kids at the wedding and I, we had a ton of fun. We spun in circles, we jumped up and down, I held their little hands and danced in a circle with them. I think they had a good time. I was pretty drunk, so those parents put a lot of trust in the weird, tall woman on the dance floor, jumping around like a crazy person. But they all kept coming back to dance with me some more. I was like the pied piper of kids on the dance floor. I could get them to do anything! I should have harnessed this power for evil and had them fetch me drinks and snacks!
I’m not sure what it says about me that I enjoy spending time dancing with little kids than chatting up some cute dude, but all I know is that I had a really good time and it was great to spend time with my homies and celebrating the love of our two friends.
The free booze doesn’t hurt either. Fill up your cup! Mazel tov!
Congrats Jenn and Jerry!
