On Weddings

It's odd to sit at a wedding, thinking, "that could have been me, if I hadn't turned him down back then." Not a certainty, of course, but likely.

Not that I wanted to marry him -- we would have been mediocrely happy, I'm sure, and I'm sure he'll be happier with the one he's got. It's just the whole wedding thing. And the knowledge that that date's not coming for me for a long time. Maybe never, with this guy. Who knows.

Of course, it's made worse by a mother who sits you down and says, you know, it's time for you and Bob to either get engaged or call the whole thing off. She'd be better off talking to him.
