That looks just like me. And I'm even working on perfecting my speaking skills. "I think that we as US Americans . . ."
The wedding is planned for January 1-- a New Year's Day wedding!! Isn't that the coolest thing you've ever heard. A new year, a new life together. I only hope that being a mother of the groom won't affect my chances at the Miss Teen Atlanta pageant.
But that isn't the really big news. "Wha!?" you say, "Bigger than a 40-something being invited to participate in a teen beauty pageant? What could possibly be bigger than that?!" This is big. Really big. Bigger than sliced bread. Bigger than the media's attention to Obama's rockstar world tour. Bigger than Celebrity Circus and Celebrity Family Feud -- combined. Oh, I have something bigger than that. A while back, you may remember meeting my son's college roommate, Jude, who came for a week-long visit out here in the country. He's been a great roommate for our son over the past year, but it seems that our son has decided to get a new roommate in January. Meet the new roommate. We love her even more than we love Jude.
