The Summer Of Weddings

One of my good friends is getting married on Memorial Day, so tomorrow Caroline and I will pack up the car and head to Nashville, Tennessee, and The Summer Of Weddings will begin.

I call it that because, by my count, there are at least five weddings between now and the end of July that I am expected to be at. Three of these weddings are out of state, and combined, will represent almost 4,000 miles of car travel. I’m not a big fan of car travel.

Oh, and while I’m complaining, I forgot to mention that weddings are undoubtedly one of my least favorite things in the entire world.

Oh well, at least this wedding should involve seeing a bunch of friends and playing a lot of ultimate.

Happy Memorial Day.

I share your general sentiments about weddings. The worst was about 12 years ago when I was a groomsman in a wedding in San Antonio in July. The air conditioning was shut off so that the candelabra wouldn't be blown out, and the bride's grandfather delivered a 45 minute discourse on the nature of marriage. It was awful.

Well, other than your own, you haven't had the joy of a Zee wedding yet... ;)

I think accordions will be involved.

Odgie,

Yuck, that sounds terrible.

The wedding on Monday turned out better than that, although spending 5 hours in a tux outside on a warm Nashville day was a little stifling as well.

Angela,

I'm definitely looking forward to the accordions.

Weddings...psh. Just a fad. It'll pass. In a few years, no one will even remember "getting married."
