my six year old is getting married

My son is getting married. The wedding has been in the works for a while. A date was set and then it faltered, the bride-to-be got cold feet. He came home that day, not too brave for tears, but he didn’t want to talk about it either. The bridesmaids were also distressed, they had brought flowers especially. The rings we fashioned out of tinfoil were left on the playground floor, silver scraps of what could have been. Weeks went by and it’s back on again now. There has been a rapprochement, so I’m told. Did I mention my son just turned six?

    Isn’t it strange how young boys (and girls I imagine) never have these conversations with their dads?

    As usual so beautifully written and a guaranteed great laugh or two.



  2. Hilarious! And fascinating.
    (Should I be concerned that my teenage son never proposed to me?)
    Another excellent read.
