I’m going to three weddings in two months. All my old buddies from high school are getting hitched. It is both strange and disconcerting to know that the same people I used to go TPing with, the same people I used to get in mud fights and bottle rocket fights with are now being turned into honest men by some pretty pretty women.
Jeremy got married this past Saturday in Selma, IN. His wife, Alanna was quite pretty and while none of us were at the wedding, the reception was an excellent chance to see get all of us lugs together. We’d not seen all of each other since Bo’s wedding almost two years before. We had this two-part bet; Next Man Down, and Last Man Standing. I won the Next Man Down part, splitting it with Phil, because we both picked Jeremy to be the next man husbanded. So each person had to give us ten bucks. I didn’t really collect mine, but someone gave me a ten anyway.
Now other people are asking me when I’m getting hitched. Thankfully I can at least say I’m going on dates from time to time. At least they can feel pleasantly surprised to some extent. Next weekend I’ve got to drive to Effingham, IL for my buddy Brian’s wedding. 7.5 hour drive!
