Yesterday, after the wedding rehearsal, the groom's parents had everyone over for some food. A big ole spread was set up: pizza, lasagna, salad, beer, etc. The groom's mom worked for the priest that was going to preside over the wedding, and so it was in her kitchen that I had my first and last conversation with him...
"Nancy says that you've even had wedding rehearsals without the bride."
"Yes, she was in the hospital having a D & C. I don't even know if the marriage was valid she was so hopped up on meds from the operation the night before."
And then John's dad handed him a big cocktail with 3 cherries and he was off.
