About halfway through the SuperGenius’s rehearsal dinner, I was struck ill. I am hoping that, since there appears now to be nothing left in my system, that I am done being ill.
I feel fine other than that, so I don’t know if I ate something–maybe that chocolate shake on the way down here? Or if the 50-person orgy I attended on Wednesday was not as carefully screened as they promised.
I’m staying at a hotel on the Butcher’s employee discount. I had to promise that I would not behave in any way that might cause the hotel to have to fire him.
I just now put my bridesmaid’s dress in the bathroom, turned the hot water on in the tub, and shut the door in order to steam the wrinkles out.
I didn’t realize the bathroom door was locked.
Once I realized what I’d done, I ran to the front desk and said, “I have done the most dumbass thing in the history of hotel guests, I…”
And the guys behind the desk all started laughing and one of them said, “Oh, no you haven’t. Whatever it is, the fact that you’re not covered in your own vomit just proves right there…”
So, they came and rescued me, which was very kind.
I just love seeing my friends. I want to just sing-song all morning “I’m having lunch with the Shi-ill.” But instead, I’m going to go get in the shower and get packed and get out of here.
See, and this is good, because I have to use up the gas in my rental car and we’ve decided to meet way yonder north, which will give me a chance to use some.
I’ve had a really good visit and I’m excited about the rest of it.
My toast is still not planned,but I think I’m just going to say something from the heart. I hate those long roasting toasts, because unless you can really pull it off, they end up just mean-spirited instead of funny. I’ve known the Super Genius since I was eighteen and she’s one of the most thoughtful, good-hearted people I know. And I just want to drink to that, to my dear friend finding happiness and someone who’s as ferociously on her side as she is on the side of the folks who love her.
I just feel lucky, y’all. I feel lucky and blessed to meet and know such cool and thoughtful people. And that’s been my whole week, meeting cool and thoughtful people.
I love you guys so much.
Not as much as I love Mrs. Wigglebottom, but pretty close…
