Downside

Filed under: analog — mhoye @ 1:41 pm

I’ve been sort of mulling this for the last few days, and I know that all of you who are familiar with My Upbeat Demeanor™ expected this, but here it is anyway.

You know what sucks about weddings? You’ve got all these people around who you love, some of whom you haven’t seen in ages, and who you’re dying to catch up with, and you get to spend about three minutes with them the whole time, when what you really want is an hour or two to sit down over drinks and catch up.

Hi, everybody. I’m glad you could all make it; stay in touch!

  1. Too true. At least you put Jamie and me together, so we got to chat a bit. I never expect to “catch up” with friends when they’re the stars of the show. You got 100+ people all trying to “catch up” with 2 in the space of a couple hours while everyone’s trying to do all the other stuff, like wedding photos, cutting the cake, speeches, etc. The math just doesn’t add up.

    If it makes you feel any better…it’s a boy!

  2. Aren’t you supposed to be on honeymoon or something?

    Congratulations, BTW. Don’t remember if I’ve said that to you yet or not, but it bears repeating.
