I'm going to a wedding at 3pm. An odd hour which I expect to be an interesting experience. Today is the wedding day for my nicest coworker, who I will call Winnie, because that's a pleasant name. Ekim will get to meet Badseed, Tinkerbell, Mr. Peabody, Makettle, Buntop, Bee, and countless other people I've told him about.
Stay tuned to find out:
Will Tinkerbell be able to get through the entire reception, or even just an hour, without getting tipsy enough to regale us all with her belching? Will Mr. Peabody find this hilarious, even in front of his wife?
Will Badseed come dressed in such a way that most of her tattoos and maybe some of her cut marks are proudly displayed? (I hope that she doesn't behave the way she did at our company Christmas parties. One year, I was truly afraid that she was going to strip on the dance floor.)
Makettle is coming with her daughter. Will her evil son-in-law, who is angry about not being included, crash the reception and make a scene? (He has been forever kicked out of a couple establishments).
Will Bee be able to get through multiple hours without fretting about the coming week at work, without Winnie (who will be honeymooning)?
Notes about this job: 1. We are losing it in a few months. 2. We always get the work done by Friday--sometimes early on Friday. 3. We get so much help from other departments that we no longer have to pack the orders ourselves! I spent yesterday quality checking. 4. No one in management seems to give a damn. About anything.
Will Actonbell scream if Bee starts talking about work?
Now I should wrap this gift, which I've had for a month. That reminds me--yesterday morning, Tinkerbell asked us all, "so, has anyone bought a gift, yet?" Bee and Mr. Peabody said that the gift registries were both bought up (I kept my mouth shut, here), and Tinkerbell related how she'd heard that Winnie and Groom were having trouble paying for the honeymoon, so the plan was to give them money.
Now, that made me feel bad. Winnie and Groom are really paying out to put on a wedding, so we can all show up and have a party, while meanwhile, they are strapped. So, I would like to predict that these newlyweds come away flush.
I hope all of you are having a relaxing/interesting/fun Saturday!
