BioHo and the MOH
It's been a long time coming. My apologies for the delay, but there has been so much going on that I have not had time to type out the wedding events. A vacation would certainly be welcome!!!
Here we are gearing up for SD's wedding, knowing that BioHo plans to be front and center. I have wracked my brain, trying to anticipate every possible scenario and pre-program my gray rock responses. Except one.
SD's MOH caught the covid.
DH and I are planted in our recliners, watching one of our favorites shows, when there is a frantic pounding on the door. We look at each other, shrug, and DH gets up to answer the door.
DH: SD! What's wrong, honey?
SD: Daddy, is Aniki here? I need to talk to her!
DH: Aniki... (I'm already walking into the kitchen, phone in pocket and on record...)
Me: SD, what's wrong?
SD: (splotchy, tear-stained face) Aniiiiii, my MOH has covid! She won't be here!!! (flings her arms around me)
Me: Oh honey, (trying to pat soothingly) I'm so sorry!
DH: Aw, I'm sorry.
SD: Ani, will you be my MOH? Please?
SD: PLEASE, Ani!
Me: What about Spawn?
SD: Oh, HELL no! Spawn's in the wedding because 'Ho insisted.
DH: One of the other girls?
Me: Yes! Maybe one of your bridesmaids can step up and I (heaven help me) can be a bridesmaid?
DH: That sounds good.
SD: No! I want Aniki!
Me: SD, your bridemaids are your friends and much closer to you...
SD: Please, Aniki. I want YOU.
DH: Honey, your mother (that tone) might not be too happy about this.
SD: ~stomps foot~ She'll have to suck it up! It's MY wedding!!! I already talked to stbH. We both want Aniki! Please say yes, Aniki!
Me: Okay, SD, okay. I'll be your MOH.
SD: (squeezing me like a lemon getting juiced) Thank you, Ani! OMG, thank you SO MUCH!!!
Me: (after SD leaves) I'll need a 5-pound xanax.
DH: (laughing) Looks like the circus'll be in town and on fire!
Bonus: Maid of Honor duties begin the morning of the wedding. When the entire wedding party convenes at 8am (ladies in the bridal suite and men in the groom room). Why so early? So we can all ride around in that farking limo to drink and take pics in various places! *dash1*
