My dear husband will need a tux for our son's wedding.
Measurements were taken, shoes were tried on, a mini view of the selections were displayed. While he was being measured, I took pictures. This kind of thing seems to happen .... oh, maybe only every 40 years or so!! I apologized to the staff for taking pictures, and they graciously recognized that I wasn't the first to take pictures of this infrequent event.
And in a blink of an eye - it was over. We were done. They will let us know a few days before the event when to pick it up. My husband said he couldn't remember the last time he wore a tux.
Silly man, I remembered!
He wore a tux at our wedding 42 years ago.
Now he remembers too!!
I have decided that EVERYONE should wear a Tux. The women too. Think on it!
I am the only one in the wedding party who DOESN'T have her wedding duds. And I am feeling the pressure of that fact. Where to get a dress, what to get, time going from one store to another, trying on multiple dresses, and ... (*sigh*) ... the wearing of it at the wedding! And then there are the shoes. I need to get shoes for this event. And hair - I need to get all 6 of my hairs done up!!! And I guess my usual solitary lipstick would be lost in the glittery sea of my dress, shoes and hair - so full make up is on the list of things I need to stress about - and not just any make up but the full deal done by a professional.
When all this is done, no one will know who I am.
I will be totally in disguise.
I could probably rob a bank.
No one would know it was me!!
Panic, Panic, Panic.
Men - they just walk in, get measured, pick it up 2 days before, run a comb through their hair, pluck a few nose hairs and maybe shave - or not! And DONE! And to add insult to injury ... they look good, too!
Everyone should wear a Tux!
PS - But for this wonderful woman who will soon be my daughter-in-law, I would do anything, including going in disguise!
