I have five weddings this summer. Seven if you count the ones I can’t make it to. Nine including my sister’s wedding reception earlier this year and my friend Diana’s wedding in London this upcoming November.
That’s nine people in my life getting married.
That’s nine nights of booty dancing until my hamstrings can’t hold me up any long.
That’s nine weekends I get to overanalyze my life and worry I am doing something seriously wrong for I could not be farther from marriage. Or kids. Or even a non-emotionally defunct boyfriend. Apparently, those are hard to come by (douchebaggery is really trendy right now, for the record).
This past weekend was wedding #1 of the summer.
Here is what my overanalyzing self discovered about my overanalyzed life:
(1) Happy hours are the best. Especially when beer, greasy bar food and cute male baseball teams are involved. And if they last 7 1/2 hours like mine did on Thursday, all the better. Sometimes, 10pm bedtimes have to wait.
(2) Love is contagious. Don’t believe me? Ask the 60-year-old man I grinded with on the dance floor Saturday night. Or the four groomsman I perhaps sexually assaulted at some point (sorry Nolan!). They’ll tell you they felt the love.
(3) Dancing is the BEST workout. In fact, my quads are still sore from breaking it down on Saturday night. It’s cardio. It’s muscle building. It’s Electric Sliding. It’s flexibility AND balance. I mean, look at the exquisite bend in my Everythingtarian back.
Who do you want to teach you how to Bernie?
Adam’s has more style. Mine is bendier.
Take your pick.
(4) Even if you don’t like cake, you still have to eat wedding cake. I don’t like cake as I much prefer a big ol’ dish of ice cream. But somehow I find myself scarfing down one – if not two – slices of cake at every wedding I go to.
This time, I wanted seven but somehow rationalized I could drink more beer if I stuck with one.
(5) Friends = life (the rest is just details). Well, family = life too, but for the purpose of this post, let’s just stick with my favorite non-related people in my life.
Your turn! Give me one life truth you’ve discovered lately. Sharing is caring!
