It is somewhat amazing the lengths and efforts that women go to in the planning and executing a wedding ceremony.
Guys, we pretty much just need to show up looking more or less presentable and ready to roll.
Not so for the women. Why is that? I haven't the foggiest.
As bystanders for the upcoming nuptials - there's not much for us to be concerned about as far as I can see - there is the rehearsal dinner to arrange (sub sandwiches and wings, anyone?) - but otherwise we just need to be on time Saturday.
There are apparently more concerns: like what do we wear Friday? what about Saturday? Saturday night?
I don't know why - trade out one dress shirt for another, throw a second tie into the suitcase, keep the suit wrinkle-free - I'm good to go.
There is one advantage to surviving/experiencing/enjoying/loving 27+ years of marriage... the ability to smile, nod, acknowledge how great your spouse looks, and figure out how to keep track of the latest scores in between.
Now, how do I pass that information along to son #1?
