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.
