Weddings ...

On Saturday, I went to a wedding, and this Sunday, I'll be going to another. (It's a pretty good excuse for eating sweets!) I have one good friend getting ready for a wedding, and John and I keep muttering about one. Weddings are in the air!

So the wedding I went to on Saturday was very enjoyable. It was at Wieden and Kennedy, which is an awfully appealing space for the offices of an advertising agency. The champagne was exceptional, and the food was acceptable--the coconut cream cake was a real standout, although somehow the lemon bars tasted like soap. I was very inspired, at least on the food side of the party equation.

Most weddings involve dancing, and this one was no exception. But the remarkable thing was that my friends Molly and Steve tried to teach me some swing dancing moves, and Steve said that I have a natural talent. He said I should take lessons. He said this twice! Wow. The nicest thing anyone has ever said about my dancing was "stop." I feel like a new woman.

John has heard me boasting about my natural talent at seven times now. And he hasn't hit me over the head yet!

I can just see it now, the cooks are in the kitchen.
"Mario, we're out of Lemons!"
"Oh no, Tony, what are we going to do!?"
"I have an idea!" He grabs the dishsoap, "See here! It says made with real lemon!"
"By golly we have it!"

Ha! Gee, W, I could *totally* see you being a natural at swing dance! I've always wanted to try it myself, but the whole "letting the man lead" thing is a bit difficult for me. Plus I think it would snap my back. But you're much bendier than I!
