She wore the Jump dress and I wore a fashion I'd seen on a website of old fashions.

Now, to be nitpicky, this is just a strange turn of phrase. She wore a fashion? Not a dress, or an outfit? And one she just saw on a website? How did it get turned into actual clothes? Don't tell me the poor overworked designer sister got assigned extra duty from the saintly OP!

All of a sudden, it struck me as hilarious, because "a website of old fashions" sounds like it would be instructing amateur bartenders in how to make a good drink.

Gad, I'm punchy, I think I need to go to bed.

LOL!!!

I hadn't noticed that one till you pointed it out. It does sound funny!

(OK, maybe a little funnier than it should, but it's 2 in the morning for me ;))

Ok, here I go again. 

The narrator/MOH/Prince William's true love/whatever left out the part at the end where, right after he "swept her up in a circle and planted," he looked deeply into her eyes and began mouthing the words to "I've Had The Time Of My Life" and then everyone on the ship, from the guests to the crew to the captain to the waiters to the room stewards, broke into simultaneous, professionally choreographed song and dance.  Then he jumped off the stage and ran down to the other end of the room, and everyone gently lifted her off the stage and set her on the floor, setting her up to run to him and jump up, while he lifts her over his head, with her arms straight out to the sides and toes pointed, thereby perfectly completing the dance lift they had been working on for weeks but she had been afraid to try.

Oh, why not.  It's as likely as the rest of her story.
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

What bothered me was, if she was that greedy, why didn't she just complain about the stuff at the baby/bridal shower, and keep it anyway? She could have sold it on Ebay. Also, why is she living with Grandma? Doesn't she have a house?

The cab, I could understand if they went to a bigger city (like NY) for the shower.

Hey - something else just hit me about this story:  "We were married ourselves in April . . ."  April is the same month the Titanic sank.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Undertheme.  Psssshhhhhshshshsh.  Actually I was married with a Titanic undertheme too.  Also a "When Harry Met Sally" overtheme, and "Dirty Dancing" and "Sixteen Candles" sidethemes.  Oh, and a "Casablanca" pre-theme, and a "Flashdance" aftertheme.

Yeah, "undertheme" still cracks me up. We not only have a cheesy fiction writer pulling bits from every bosom-heaving paperback ever published, but she uses alien words too.

I was married with a white undertheme.

Oh. Wait. I think I mean I was married with white underwear.

It's not quite so strange a turn of phrase, but kind of silly. I remember old KMart circulars in the Sunday paper advertising this week's "fashions" on sale. The clothes were never referred to as clothes or apparel. Just "fashions."

This would make a good sitcom script! Especially the part where she falls into the cake!

I love this thread!!!! It's so funny!!!

Personally, I shouldn't read it though. I'm too busy trying to convince my husband we need a second wedding. I heard Hiroshima was very beautiful before... yeah. Or Rome, like around when Nero was emperor. The walls could be burning! Or how about a New Orleans style wedding...
