My daughter is getting married. Here is what happened when she told me-
Daughter: I’m getting married!
Mom: That’s so awesome! Now what do we do?
Daughter: I don’t know.
Mom: Me neither. How about elope?
Daughter: No, I don’t think so.
Mom: Oh my god, you mean I have to dress up? What will your Father wear? I don’t know how to put together a wedding! Can we have chocolate cake? Do I have to wear high heels? I’m not wearing makeup! Can we have a candy bar? Wouldn’t if be fun if we all dressed like circus performers! Oh god, were am I going to get a circus performer type outfit?
Daughter: No Mom, no circus outfits. Could you just design our invitations?
Mom: Yes. . . Yes I can.
I put, “as they join fin and paw in marriage”in the announcement as a joke, but my daughter and her fiance both liked it, so it sayed.
