Another One Bites the Dust …

Am getting married this Sunday?. How does that sound?

I am getting married this Sunday? three days away? 72 hours? Holy S**t !!!!

Am I supposed to react? or wait for this to sink in as I have been waiting for the last few months?.

Let me see where I stand today? well I have a house.. a fully furnished rented one? not for from Food World or Sunny Wine Shop?. I have an adequate stash in the bank? a phone? a job that pays reasonably well and lets me sleep late on weekends? and 25 + years of my life behind me?

And now?. I will have a wife.

Why is it that the thought gives me a feeling akin to my first experience in the swimming pool? when the coach had pushed all of us 10 year olds into the deepest part of the pool without as much as a by your leave !

So all that I have been planning for?. Working for the better part of last year is finally going to happen. Hey? there aren?t any cymbals clashing or trumpets blowing are they?? Pretty silent?. They way it is for everyone I suppose. Flashes of lightening the way it happens in the good old movies? well can?t see any?.

What I CAN see is that I had a tough time getting a 10 day leave sanctioned from my company? and that the woodwork in my new house needs a bit of polish? and that the Gas Connection is three days late in being set up ?. And that the new maid is saving water by forgetting to sweep the corners in my new home? and that I will probably end up with facial paralysis for having smiled non stop at a week long series of receptions !

Or is it? well the thought of having company for the early morning chai is not all together bad you know? or knowing that the next time I watch ?Gone With the Wind? I can have an argument about Scarlet again? and maybe now I will have some incentive to leave my office that little bit earlier?

Hmmm? that doesn?t sound so bad does it? and maybe I did not mention that I just like being with her?.

Just a thought though? if I am queasy getting married to a decent person like her? I just wonder what she would be going through?.

Hmmmm

So your random ramblings found a pair of ears to listen to..

Dance, Drink & Celebrate, for everything else is just a mirage!
