Dear Little Brother,
Change of plans. I’m not coming to your wedding this Saturday. It is going to be 80 degrees out here on the edge of the world that day. Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve seen the sun? Besides, I hear it’s going to be raining in TN. If I come to your wedding, I will miss the one day a year of loveliness the Universe affords this part of the world. I don’t want to miss our “Summer”.
And yes, yes I would stand you up over weather. What’s your point?
Ohhhh tooo funny… and sooo true. I mean, 80 degree weather here is a once a year event!!!!
It is! And three days of it. I’m jealous. ~W
I really do not think that I could live in your town. I would be in bed, in a fetal position. I totally support your plan to boycott the wedding in order to enjoy your one nice day. So what if your brother never speaks to you again!
I’m not sure how I live in this town. Hopefully, we’ll get a little bit of sun in TN while we’re there. It stinks, though, to be leaving rain, going to rain, and coming home to rain. Only to know it was completely sunny the WHOLE time we were gone. Oy!! ~W
I think I just got spammed.
I’m not sure how I feel about that, since today’s comment not only exceeded my usual high standards but your readers’ expectations for wit and frivolity as well.
Ok, just for you—I hunted through 800 spam comments. None from you. And my stats only shows you making one comment. So WordPress must be having issues. 😀 ~W
Perhaps they can move the wedding to your town. If he really values you as a sister, it should be no problem.
Laugh RIOT. ~W
Ha…ha… this is a joke, right? I’m pretty sure scaring the poop out of the bride by saying a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON (that’s you) isn’t coming isn’t…ya know… nice…
Seriously, I didn’t know it was supposed to be raining this week (I’ve been checking Jamaica weather, not TN… I’m so goofy), but I’d be down for making this an impromptu destination wedding if anyone else was up for it 😀
Well, since Astoria isn’t a destination, let’s keep the nuptials in TN, m’kay? 😀 And of course I was joking! We booked airfare the NIGHT Mark told us the news. (THANKS FOR THE ADVANCED NOTICE, MARK!)
Oh man…my comment just got eaten…and it was so witty…
Let’s see…it’s hot in AZ…blah blah, I can totally understand the weather thing…blah blah…um…Oh yeah, surely with today’s technology, you could appear via satellite…if it’s good enough for movie stars, it’s good enough for you!
Hmm… that seems to be going around.
We actually joked about that, between ourselves. Because I found this amazing (and ridiculously!) expensive dress and I was all, “Ok, so I’m going to call Mark and tell him I can’t come to his wedding because I bought this dress. But I’m totally game to do the wedding virtually!” 😀 ~W
oh boo~ it figures doesn’t it?
Well, it is still early May, so you might get another 80 degree day… sometime 🙂 Have a fabulous time at your brother’s wedding!
It’s just my luck!! ~W
Well, when we were in St. Charles, MO the first day, we saw a wedding going on in the pouring rain. I mean–BIG DROPS, not depressing drizzle like here. I hope it’s better for you back there. I will enjoy the 80 degree day on your behalf, darling.
Oh, I hope you enjoy BOTH your 80 degree days!! Drink a hef for me. 😀 ~W
It just figures that the good weather comes when you have other out of town plans. We’re supposed to get up to 97 here in Central OR. WHAT? Go from rain today to blistering heat by Friday.
Wow… that is hot, not warm. LUCKY YOU. 😀 ~W
Yeah, I’m bracing myself for the day of gorgeousness that the weather forecasters have promised us this week. A few of us here are going to go batty if the weather doesn’t pull through. Perhaps Tennessee will cooperate, too?
It’s been strangely cold here. I’m jealous of the NW for once. 😀 ~W
You can film the day in Oregon and then play it back when you return from Tennessee in your soggy silver shoes. Then later, when the rain comes back, replay your film on TV over and over and over again.
I’m confused, how can I film it, if I’m not there?? ~W
Just set your webcam on auto. Of course, it’s too late now.
You think? I heard it got to 90+ while we were gone!! Oh my. ~W
