Attention Kmart shoppers! Today's Blue Light special is the announcement of the engagement of Almost Grown and JP (must get a better blogger name for him!)
A wonderful photo of the intendeds at the vineyard.
The sweethearts have known each other throughout college and in fact were partners in a Stage Combat class freshman year. In that class, Almost Grown whacked JP "where it hurts" a couple of times (once during a performance. Very real reaction, JP!) I think he may have punched her in the kidney once. After all that, plus swinging swords at each other, I figure marriage should be safer!
The two plan to graduate from college in, um... six weeks and enjoy a long engagement while they work to earn enough nickels to rub together.
JP called and formally asked for permission, but Stud Muffin would like to meet him in person before agreeing. There will, of course, be a discussion of the transfer of a herd of goats, oxen, flat screen tv, or whatever the going rate is these days! I'm not even sure who has to give the other all this stuff.
I think it is great for them to have found each other, regardless of the goat exchange rate!
Any "mother of the bride" jokesters will promptly be hexed with geriatric pregnancies, children who won't leave home, or more than your fair share of cellulite!
