Just got off the phone with my parents. Among other things, we talked about Molly and Drew's upcoming wedding. (My parents, sisters and bros-in-law are all going.)
Here's how the conversation went down:
BLOGDAD: The weather is supposed to blow this week.
ME: I know. But I checked the weather for next Saturday and it's supposed to stop snowing and be a little warmer.
BLOGMOM (in the background, yelling thru blogdad): Where are you going for pictures?
ME: I don't know. (Which is a bit of a lie... but there are a few potential wedding pic places and I just sort of didn't feel like getting into it, especially since it was going to involve a lot of relayed info going back and forth thru blogdad.)
BLOGDAD: So are you bringing Brissy with you? (NOTE: Brissy is our gay family friend who we have basically adopted as a brother. But since he's gay, he's actually more like a sister. So, we call him Brissy -- half brother, half sister.)
ME: No, he has to work until 7, then would have to go home and get ready. (NOTE: While it sucks that Brissy can't come because he's working, he's still doing my makeup that day. He is an AMAZING makeup artist.)
BLOGDAD: Oh, yeah, that would never work. He takes forever to get ready. (Note: Why do I find it so funny that blogdad immediately realized Brissy would take too long to get ready to make it to the wedding in time?) Well, we'll still have fun without him.
Why do I share this conversation with you? Because. I had a revelation.
I am the family member who always has the gay guy as her date because she's perpetually single for important friend/family weddings. OMG.
I mean, that's not always a bad thing. My makeup is always flawless. I never have an errant bra strap showing. And my date puts Chris Brown to shame on the dance floor.
In reality, it is much more fun to have Brissy (or another gay friend -- I have plenty!) as a wedding date, but unfortunately it just ain't gonna happen this time. But, I guess there is one good thing about Brissy not being able to come with me next Saturday... one less person to compete with for any of the single guys at the reception!
