2530. A memorable wedding

It was certainly a catastrophic calamity when Xavier made an announcement at his daughter’s wedding. He was leaving Hailey his wife, the mother of the bride, and going to live with Kennedy, the mother of the groom. He couldn’t have picked a less appropriate occasion if he had tried.

The groom’s mother, Kennedy, then announced that she was doing no such thing. It was news to her and she barely knew Xavier apart from having spoken to him occasionally as a future in-law.

The bride’s mother, Hailey, stood and said she’d had enough. She went over to a side table, grabbed the top tier of the wedding cake and threw it at Kennedy saying, “Take that you creepy witch”.

Whereupon the hitherto unmentioned Adrian, the father of the groom, joined in and said “Don’t you treat my wife like that”, and tipped a full jug of punch all over Hailey.

The wedding guests were aghast. The bride and groom were horrified into speechlessness. A couple of people from the kitchen out the back of the venue came and cleaned up the mess.

It was certainly a relief a week later when Violet and Isaiah’s marriage collapsed into oblivion.

These movie plots are so facile.

    I’m going to be attending a wedding in a few weeks that is shaping up to be just as ridiculous as this one, but the worst part is that I won’t be able to write about it for fear of alienating family. Oh, and it’s a Halloween costume required event.

        I was planning to go as Cruella Deville from 101 Dalmatians, with my son’s dressed as her sidekicks Horace and Jasper because they look cute in flat caps and I am feeling a little less than optimistic about the whole thing. I am, however, awfully tempted by Bruce’s suggestion.

    The young men at Trinity College in Hartford, where I took courses over two summers, used to flick pats of butter onto the ceiling and then stick a piece of bread to them. The contest was to see if they could get another pat of butter on the bread hanging from the ceiling and get ANOTHER slice of bread to stick. I think the record was four.
