Quick and Funny

Or at least... it is to me.

I am working on invitation wording right now. I despise the whole "honour of your presence" bit. I'm sure it works great for plenty of people, but in my head it says
"come, celebrate, bring a damn big present, use the extra starch for the stuffy shirt, and don't forget the biggest stick ever placed where the sun don't shine."
Just not the feeling we are going for.
I'll do a full post shortly about the options I've come up with and the family drama that ensued. But for the mean time, this is just funny, and very "us". While looking or a quote to go with the wording I came across this quote from a scrapbbooking site:
"i know you are the one because even on the first day we met you could finish my sentences, and know that when i said nothing was wrong, you knew something was. this is how i know you are meant for me. and i love you."

Nothing special. Sweet and cheesy, blah. (My apologies if anyone happens to love that.) Here's the funny part. I am scatterbrained and ADHD to boot. I am easily distracted by noises or shiny things and more often then not I stop talking in the middle of a sentence and am then confused why Adam is staring at me expecting something (like, say, the end of my thought/sentence.) This drives him bananas. (What an odd saying "driving someone bananas". Did someone come up with that after too much Mario Kart?)

I digress...

Anyway, the point being, when I came across the above quote, I thought it said,
"i know you are the one because even on the first day we met you could finish my...."

I nearly fell out of my chair laughing because it was so me.
We probably won't be using it in our invites or anywhere else for the wedding because I am sure most of our guests wouldn't get it. But maybe I'll sneak it in somewhere... along with my hidden mickeys! :)

Ha. "come, celebrate, bring a damn big present, use the extra starch for the stuffy shirt, and don't forget the biggest stick ever placed where the sun don't shine." That is the most perfect description I have ever heard of!

Love the Mario Kart reference :)
