- 1. Are you excited about the wedding?
No, I’m not excited about the wedding. I want it to be over. I want to skip ahead to January 20th, when all the festivities in both countries AND the flying will be over and we can get back to something resembling normalcy.
- Are you nervous?
Um. I’m getting married in two days. I’m moving to another country. I have to fly to get there, and I hate flying. And once I get there, I have to pretend in the immigration line that I’m really there on vacation so they don’t send me right back to the states. And after that, we have to fill out paperwork, get references, I have to get a medical, and wait for a government official to decide if I can stay. All in all, the next few weeks will have a profound impact on the rest of my life, and you ask me if I’m nervous?
- Wow, and you actually have time to post news on your web site with all the planning?
Uh, yeah. The wedding itself is going to be VERY short, like 10 minutes, with fewer than 30 guests, in my parents’ living room. What’s to plan?
- Okay, well, it’s your day after all.
Next person who says that to me I’m gonna throw up on. Let me remind you, TWO people are getting married that day. And since I hate having the focus of attention on me, I’m gonna try my hardest to keep it OFF me as much as possible.
