Getting Closer

    Less than a month away from my wedding now, and the stuff’s getting real.  Yesterday, we got our marriage license.  Does it bother anyone else that you buy those at the office of the Register of Wills?  Is this a subtle way of likening marriage to a death sentence?

   Plans are just about set for my upcoming bachelor party.  We’ve settled on cucumber sandwiches and a nice Earl Grey Tea.  As for the evening’s entertainment:  I’ve hired a clown who creates amazing balloon animals.  And if things start to get really wild, I might just break out my Monopoly board.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, you know, in case anyone asks.

   Speaking of bachelor parties…The other night I was watching Rules of Engagement, and one of the characters (The guy who used to be Puddy on Seinfeld) likened bachelor parties to funerals for the fun part of your life.  I’m surprised that the angry look I got for laughing out loud at that crack didn’t turn me to stone.
