**Maybe if I don’t wear deodorant to the ceremony some people will stay away. There’s got to be some way to be certain there’s enough food for me and my friends.
**Where can I find glass bottles for table decorations? Oh, duh, coffee shops. Scratch that. The Internet.

**Wow. This is actually happening.
**Oh, I can’t wait for the honeymoon.
**Did I mention I could use some lemons?
