Soon to be starring in the feature film Snakes on a Head.
I clearly recall, that a few hours later, we made the trip into the basement of the church. I sat down and made a declaration to everyone within earshot. “Things WILL go wrong today. If the ring bearer wants to break-dance down the aisle, fine. If someone passes out, we’ll deal with it. If my ex-boyfriend shows up and starts shooting people…well, that’s really going to suck.
And, you know what? Other than the snakes on my head, everything went beautifully. True perfection. I had the most wonderful time, had great conversations with old family and I spent the afternoon saying thanks to everyone who had helped deliver us our dream wedding.
I’m glad that our day started out a little strange, because it showed us what marriage would be like. Some days are dreamy and fun, but other days are Pop-Tarts and Medusa. Some days are both. You work with what you are given.
Happy Anniversary to the guy who has stayed by my side through all of these crazy years. Through sickness and health (mostly sickness), thick and thin (mostly thick), brown and blonde. I love you.
I wouldn’t want to share Pop-Tarts with anyone else.
