Mr. & Mrs. Kauffman
Tonight was my cousin Tricia's wedding to her beloved Kevin. It's funny, you know a girl her whole life and never know that she has a hip-hop alter ego that goes by the name Tricialicious until you give her Maid of Honor a microphone and the truth comes out in one fabulous speach.
Really, it was a quite marvelous wedding not just because the weather was perfect, or that we got to watch the sun set while we were eating tasty little sandwich rolls and the best trail mix ever. And, it wasn't the trees filled with little white lights after dark, the perfect dinner, or the ice cream wedding cake that made it marvelous either. There is something special about watching two people, especially one that you have grown up with, on their wedding day and really getting the sense that this day is the happiest day in their whole life to this point.
I just wonder if Tricia realizes that Jim too has a hip-hop alter ego that lives by the "g-code". Oh, yeah he is straight G here in Arrowhood. Just ask him, he'll tell you all about it.
