Has your Royal Wedding Invitation Arrived Yet?

            “Did the mail come yet?” I asked anxiously.

            “No,” my husband answered. “Why do you care? You in a hurry to get the American Express bill?”

            I rolled my eyes. “Of course not. The royal wedding invitations were mailed out last week, and mine should be arriving any day now.”

            “I see. You know, it’s possible you’re not getting an invitation. I wouldn’t want you to be too disappointed.”

            “I know I’m getting an invitation. Remember when we were visiting Windsor Castle in October and I signed the Queen’s very own guest register? Queen Elizabeth and I are now BFF’s.”

            “We took a tour of the castle, and you signed the credit card receipt for us to get in,” Chris reminded me gently. “I don’t think that qualifies you for a royal wedding invitation.”

            “hmmm…I suppose you could be right. How about this? Do you think I’d get an invite if I camped out in front of the British Embassy in Atlanta and went on a hunger strike? I bet Kate would take pity on me and come to Atlanta to personally invite me. She seems like such a nice girl.”

            “Sorry, my love, but that strategy has already been taken. There’s a 19-year-old girl camped out in front of the British Embassy in Mexico City on a hunger strike. She already hasn’t eaten for 8 days, and she swears she won’t take in anything but water until she gets her invitation.”

            “Well, darn it all. If she’s already done 8 days, I’ll never be able to catch up. I’ll just have to think of something else.”

            Chris laughed at the disgruntled expression on my face. “I guess you will. If it makes you feel any better, that girl’s hunger strike ploy isn’t working anyway.”

            “Yeah, you always take a chance with something like that. I’m not really a hunger strike kind of girl anyway.  Oh look, there’s the mail truck. I’ll just pop out there and see if my invitation arrived.”

            “I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you, Vic.”

            “Thanks, love.”

Just for the record, if this girl gets a wedding invitation and I don’t, I’m going to be really upset. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/8332429/Mexico-teen-on-hunger-strike-over-royal-wedding.html


  1. I'd be your plus one, of course...

  2. Certainly. I wouldn't dream of asking anyone else!
