It’s not that I’m bitter. It’s just some of my married friends make it hard to understand why they did it in the first place. “It was a mistake!” they cry. Out come the wedding pictures, to be dissected and scrutinized, for every possible foreshadowing of impending doom. “At least you looked good,” I tell them, picking my way through discarded taffeta. “Of course we looked good,” they spit out, directing the statement at the closest wine bottle. “Getting everything from Elly’s is the only thing we got right.” 145 N.
