Lecture Me!


I need a lecture to motivate me to go to my cousin Jacqueline's family wedding shower on Wednesday night. Or, better still---I need a hot date to get out of it. I know I will look like the family anti-social if I don't go, and yet, as I explained to my unsympathetic parents, I don't want to go unprotected! I am the last standing single old maid in my family! The "bookends" of my security both got married. Jacqueline is 23, and Whitney was 29, so here I am the lone individual trailed, at a very far distance by many cousins 22 and younger. I just feel so old and single when I am around my Utah family. I know I shouldn't and ect.,ect.,ect., and its self-imaging I know, but gee wiz. Anyway, like when Panini didn't want to go to her step-sister's wedding, and her mom applied the pressure I am getting it too. Doesn't anyone understand how hard it is? Or do I just need to buck up? And yes, I have thought about hiring a male escort! LOL. Too expensive. Alas~.

now, now . . . have you really checked into the expenses? I hear they can be quite reasonable if you only want a 2 hour showing. ;) (do it! do it!)

Wow, it is to early for me to even imagine going to another family wedding after this last weekends. Family drama doesn't even come close. (in-law issues)Good luck, Esperanza! YOu are always welcome to come to my house and be convienently out of town for the rest of the week. ;)

If they give you grief tell them to try setting you up with someone you would fit with (and not just because you're both single). Who knows, you might get a hot date then.

Esperanza said...

Oh, they have tried a few times....
and I think it is better to find someone on my own!

I had to attend both my little brother's and my aunt's weddings this summer. They too were my barriers, but sadly, I am the lone single person on my mom's side and the next cousin is 17. So I understand. What you need to do is go shopping. Find a smoking hot dress, some green eye shadow and show up at the wedding like you don't care what people think. The best defense is a good offense. And showing people you are happy and healthy and excited to be who and what you are is the key. It doesn't really matter what mental gymanstics and inner turmoil you go through, just don't let them see you sweat! And if anyone says something about your single status, just look at them like their idiots. Because they are.

Scully, thank you I needed that! What to wear...

I interviewed Daryn Tufts from Singles Ward and American Mormon today. He's 33 and single and cute and tall. So even if people make you feel bad, just think of how successful and single he is.
