If ever you think life is predictable and boring, consider the case of Derek and Lisa. They were friends long ago and far away. And then they weren’t. That estrangement lasted for a long time and was considered permanent. Their lives took separate, disconnected paths for many years. Then life said “Ha!”
Eight years ago this weekend, we made it official in Las Vegas at the Little White Chapel. We drove up on a rented Harley and did the deed at 3 pm on December 23rd. A couple of oblivious tourists walked through our two-minute ceremony. As we posed for pictures out front, we noticed a stripper across the road was swinging on a giant swing in front of a peeler bar. The wedding ahead of ours was the Elvis special complete with an impersonator. It was perfect.
As we say at home, Happy AnniverserBee!
