Yes, peeps. Today marks the day that the offspring (in this case, a daughter) of two of the Usual Suspects (Captain Arthur and the “Good Sister”) is getting married. This, of course, means that all the Usual Suspects will all be at one place at the same time. Perhaps we should hire security.
In any event, it promises to be quite the shindig, fueled by an adult beverage or two.
But, wait! There’s more!
The day after the most recent marriage of a Usual Suspects’ offspring (in that case a son), the aunt and uncle of the groom (the “Good Sister” and Captain Arthur) hosted a “breakfast” in honor of the lucky couple. I put the word “breakfast” in quotes, because that it was it was supposed to be. The plan was that we would all gather for a nice breakfast spread and maybe even enjoy a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa and then go home to take it easy. However, in true Usual Suspects fashion, the “breakfast” lasted damned near twelve hours, with a couple gallons of vodka and damned near a case of champagne having been consumed.
So, not surprisingly, after raising hell tonight, we will all gather tomorrow at the home of Ken, my bodyguard, and the Deckmistress (the uncle and aunt of the bride) for yet another “breakfast.” This one may even involve some guitar pickin’. (The groom plays.)
You may not hear from me for a few days.
