A little bit Irish.

Another wedding down, another broken Radge, writing a post-mortem borne of lashings and lashings of ambrosia creamed gargle.

Ah here, you all know the drill. Frocks and suits, speeches and stout. Clappings and jeerings and a personalised greeting from Take That. Actually, that one's new. The rest was as you'd expect, teeming with good will and old men from Leixlip never to be met again.

The wonderings. Wonder if the bridesmaids are game? No. Maybe some of the guests.

Scanning the tables for possible encounters. Be clever about it. The middle of three consecutively seated females is likely single. Maybe have a pop at her later... Or her... Or oh she's a looker that one. I definitely will. Or would.

Or I'm not even fooling myself. Instead I'll get drunk and far too emotional, back in the room and altogether crap. That most jolting of changes.

But we don't like to talk about that.

It's gets tedious after years of different weddings with different girlfriends and sometimes none.

Radge said...

AG - Is that German for 'wow'?

Holemaster - All good until the drink takes hold, I find.

Radge said...

Barman - Nah, spirits were high. Too high.

Prin - Hmmm...

i'm with holemaster, weddings are tedious, particularly so when those involved didn't learn their lesson first time round.

i missed one recently, one of my closest friends, it was fraught but i refused to go. i know them both, don't like weddings and had shagged all the bridesmaids, the bride and sundry other attenders. which just shows how incestuous we all once were. and another good reason not to go.

Biggest load of bollocks ever. TM.

Radge said...

Swiss - Sounds best avoided.

5X - I know. You've been most vocal on the subject.
