I was pulling out of the driveway with two nieces in the back. While I was spying the road for oncoming traffic, Niece 1 suddenly asks, "Lea, can you get married?"
"Um, sweetie, not right now."
"But can you get married?"
I wasn't liking where this was going.
"Do you mean is it possible for me to get married?"
Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Of course, the real reason for this conversation became clear. After revealing her desperate wish to be a flower girl and/or bridesmaid, she said, "Can you make the wedding really late so I can stay up?"
That's what anticipation for my nuptials boils down to: avoiding bedtime.
Eloping sounds better and better.
