According to a report in today’s Daily Mail, a wedding party in Michigan, USA came a cropper when the dock they were posing on suddenly collapsed, forcing them to paddle for their lives.
A quick look at the happy couple (centre) hints at the probable cause.
Apparently, once in the water, the groom was off like a shot, leaving a bridesmaid to rescue his new wife. Possibly he spotted a Big Mac (with shake and extra fries) discarded on the shore, and instinct kicked in.
But is it the best start to married life? I’m not convinced.
If I swam off and left the current Mrs C in the lurch, she’d hunt me down like the dog I was. A woman who has won ‘Best Kept Kitchen’ three years on the trot doesn’t take prisoners. As any germ would tell you if it could.
Elsewhere in the news, our bathroom is complete, Dave having laid the new floor, tidied up and pronounced himself ‘done’. He looks pleased with himself, having finished on schedule after all, despite setbacks.
We shake hands, a cheque is signed and I promise to recommend him to my friends.
Hard to believe the saga has ended. Everything looks fine and he appears to have done a good job. Fingers crossed, then.
Life won’t be the same without him.
But I expect we’ll learn to cope.
Thought for the Day
‘A morning wedding is a good idea. Then, if the marriage doesn’t work out, at least you haven’t wasted the whole day.’
