Saturday, before catching The Marvelous Wonderettes in Skokie, Gator, Jamie, Eric (Jamie’s fancy fiancé), Mavis (Jamie’s mom) and I had a quick bite at Hop Haus just shy of Evanston. Jamie was still on a high, having picked her wedding and reception venue and setting a date (girl works fast — not even a week has gone by since Eric popped the question).
So, imagine my surprise when she hands me a barrel full of monkeys to open, and in it was a note asking me to be her Maid of Honor (Male of Honor we’re calling it — there’ll be no drag on my behalf, much to my mother’s relief).
A true surprise, and I’m deeply honored and touched. If any of you former Maid of Honors have any advice – any! – please comment below.
Mavis was armed, as always, with her camera to document this event:
Seriously. I, along with Dan — Eric’s best man — are going to see to it that Jamie and Eric’s wedding is the best, most fabulous wedding ever.

Why thank you, Srah!!! A wealth of information.
Always a brides-male, never a bride! 1st of all, CONGRATS TO JAMIE, I missed that snippet of info. And good luck – I’ve done it more times than I care to count but it’s always fun.
Bob! I’m a maid of honor right now, too!
Well, matron. Sigh. But we should talk!
Damn right, we are!! Its going to be a party people will talk about for ages!!
How exciting!! Congrats to Jamie and Eric…
Bobby if I can give you any advice… make sure they enjoy the day (not everything will go right … but by golly you guys will all have a blast.. and they will have a wonderful day to remember). Remember when you took me out on my b- party.. That was pretty hilarious!!!
Hey Bullfrog. Yup – I remember that b party. I think it ended at Cellblock? Wow! One for the record books.
Robert dearest… I think you’re perfect for the job. ;)
Nice pix, Bob…! So glad you can be male-of-honor and help my baby and Eric with the upcomings! See you at the festivities, if not before.
I hope to do you proud, Mavis!
My sad realization this morning…If you’re the MOH, I think that makes me the BM. :(
BUT (BUTT!) You’ll be the best BM ever in the history of BMs.
Yay! that’s awesome! Congrats! And good for her for starting the planning right away. We dillied and dallied too long and procrastinated on some things and I regretted it.
You will be an awesome MOH. Being a BM is also a great job! Don’t underestimate the power of BM’s! hahaha
