This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. Each post will be associated with a letter of the alphabet with the theme ‘Lessons from a Wedding’.
Weddings (or any other family gathering) invariably serves as a breeding ground for unwanted questions from cousins, aunts, grand-aunts and even the neighbour across the street.
Target of these questions: Singles.
The best target of all: The single elder sister of the bride who foolishly attended the wedding without a plus one. Not even a fake plus one. See? Foolish.
The Drunk Cousin
“When ish yours wedding?”
“Whens…? I wantsh to go…”
“You’re not invited. I’m going to Las Vegas to elope.”
“Whys you never tellsh me you going to Lush..Las..Vegash…???”
“Cos I only decided now.”
Father’s Cousin’s Grandaunt’s Nephew’s Uncle
“Your sister’s wedding party is so nice. Can’t wait to attend yours.”
“You’ll have to wait awhile then.”
“Tell your boyfriend you want to get married lah. Sure, he’ll propose.”
“Really? How come?”
“Cos I’m fierce.”
The Annoying Auntie
“So, when is it your turn?”
The Random (fairly cute) Stranger
“So, are you married?”
