I'm glad to be rid of the shoes.

But the shoes are one of the very few things that I won't miss about the Amber and Adolph Wedding Experience.

Other things I won't miss:

* To-do lists.
* Brian's marriage paranoia.
* That nagging feeling that I should be married by now. Though the hope that the feeling will ever go away is pure idiocy on my part.

The best thing I can report is that I feel about Amber and Adolph's wedding the same way I felt about Mindy and Juan's. After both ceremonies and receptions, I felt like there had been a group effort to get these two people hitched. Like the good old days when weddings were community affairs, like a barn-raising.

One thing that I must bring out into a public forum: Killy, how did you NOT KNOW that you were supposed to decorate the car? How did this bit of tradition pass by you?

Tsk.

Anyway, I think we've all made some great new friends through the joining of these two people and I'm happy to have added so many new people to my list of email contacts. Especially Annabel, who laughs at dirty things.

  • . . . and Claire, who posts dirty things on Flickr. I'm so happy to have such great friends, and new family! Thanks to everyone for making our barn-raising a really fun time.

  • Killy,

    I suppose you know by now that we ladies in green dealt with the problem. Flowers and icing all over Adolph's car. Actually, it was quite nice. I hope someone has some photos, because I haven't seen any yet.

    Whoo! Claire DID post the dirty stuff on Flickr. I didn't post my dirty pics, but it looks like Claire got everything I did. And for the record, it was "Pin the Macho on the Man," guys. Macho. Because we can't call the thing by its actual name. Especially not while we're pinning it to a poster while tipsy.

    One of those penis whistles is now haunting Brian's bedroom. I told him to throw it away, but he refuses to touch it. I told him it's probably made in the same place as those plastic bird whistles you can win at Chuck E. Cheese, but that didn't change his mind.

  • In Killy's defense, and the rest of the barn-raising men. No cars were hurt in the making of any of our barns. We did not disturb Killy's red hot Mustang, nor was my chauffeured (By Carl) white Caddie.
    By precedence we have had no experience.
    Also, I say again Adolph just washed the car, if we had sullied it up the bug would have stayed that way till October or November.

  • I too was unaware, until reading this post, that it is tradition that the Best Man decorate the car...
