Wedding Day

Posted on | July 9, 2010 | 88 Comments

My 21-year-old daughter, Kennedy Catherine McCain, is getting married at 10 a.m. today to Martin, which means that my attempts to bribe the couple into eloping have failed.

When I saw this headline, I misunderstood for a second and thought the judge had ruled weddings unconstitutional but . . .

Several months ago, I remember being told that this would be what is called a “small” wedding. For reasons that have not been adequately explained, we have only an estimate of the number of guests who have RSVP’d, but it’s somewhere between 130 and 197. And they must be fed.

As you might guess, I won’t be blogging much today. More on the happy occasion here.

    God Bless you with MANY grandkids.

    Too bad your pal Rick is not coming to do a firework show at the wedding, now that would impress the Argentine groom side!

    Stacy, ban this idiot called “gg.” She (he) it have nothing to add to any thread except sarcasm and leftwing hatred.

    As for you, the pathetic gg, I recognize that you are bitter because your pathetic ideology is failing miserable and your fellow morons will soon be booted from office. It must be terribly upsetting to learn that there is no free lunch after all. No more big government teat for gg to suck on because he/she is such a loser that he/she has no skills or ambition to make it on their own.

    MUCH BLESSINGS ON THE HAPPY OCCASION!

    Best wishes to the newlyweds!

    Be benevolent and let them get settled in their new digs before you insist she move all her crap from your place. And when she does, be sure to get your crap in there right away, because if you delay someone else’s crap will be in there by the time you get around to it.

    You have to annex that stuff by conquest. He who negotiates ends up with a sewing room, and what they heck do you do with a sewing room, for crying out loud?

    ` ` ` ` `

    Through the mists of time, we journey back to a single conversation from many years ago in a galaxy pretty close to here, what Comrade Obama might call “a teaching moment . . .”

    ME: I’m thinking that space would make a decent office.
    HER: Oh, but I really wanted to turn it into a sewing room.
    ME: But you don’t sew!
    HER: Of course I don’t sew, I don’t have a sewing room!

    “““““

    I conceded, lost the room, and perhaps had three or four buttons replaced in the next eight years. If any other sewing ever went on in there, I don’t know when or who did it, unless the Underwear Gnomes decided to diversify their operations.
