My friend has ribbed me for my failing a bit over the years.

So, fast forward to marriage #2, where I like the bride and generally support the marriage. I wrote an excellent speech that spoke highly of the bride, groom, and relationship. I even managed to quote the groom's favorite band, and I constructed the whole thing without even a hint of the prior marriage that continues to cast a long shadow over the groom's life.

So, what does the groom say when I step up in front of the room, glass in hand, to make the toast?

"It better be a good one this time."

I hope you told him not to try that joke with his new bride that night.

that's a helluva story. i'm wondering if you realized before the moment how awkward the first speech was going to be?

 

i feel like were it me, i would strongly consider finding some way to give up that responsibility once i figured that out.

 

but then again, i put myself up a tree on a regular basis and when that happens i can really freak out. some folks are much better at putting on a good face and seeing those things through. not i.

I re-watched the clip to see how she reacted after falling. She just rolled over and laid still in pure shame.

Felt bad.

Many years ago there was this woman who lived close to me on my block. She worked at one of the cafes that I frequent and we would exchange pleasantries on our block and at the cafe. She always had this kind of melancholy about her (think Em7b5 to A7b9 to Dmin-maj7). One day she saw me at the cafe and she informed me that she was moving to Italy. At that moment I had hoped that maybe that move to Italy would change the melancholy about her.

Recently she came into my mind because the building that she lived in, like so many others, was torn down to build a more modern one. I was wondering where she could be, who she is with, what is she thinking, is she thinking of me, and whether she'll ever return someday.

The other day I ran into this woman! I said "You're back from Italy!" She couldn't believe that I remembered that she went to Italy. She spent a year and a half in Italy and then spent some time in another American city and now she is back in the neighborhood. Her face and mannerisms had changed. There was no more melancholy about her (think Dmin7 to Fmaj7 to Cmaj7). She was happy with her new boyfriend and her experience in Italy earned her some new credentials, memories oxford comma and the experience to become a teacher here in NYC. I told her that she had just popped up in my mind because they tore down her building. Coincidentally she said that she walked by her old building and noticed that and thought of me. She said that her and her boyfriend had a conversation about me wondering where I could be, who I am with, what was I thinking, was I thinking of them, and whether I'll ever return someday! She claimed that this dynamic is an omen to great things!

It is always good to see people making great lives.
