I read this at Writers of Central Florida or Thereabouts’ Short Attention Span Storytelling Hour at Stardust Coffee & Video on Wednesday, April 13, 2016. This post was also published on ThoughtCatalog.com on July 27, 2016.
One of my dear friends from work got married the other weekend and I was asked to accept the honor of being her day of wedding coordinator. My background as a former Pre-K CCD teacher, office baby shower hostess, and my reputation at work for being the most obsessed with schedules, calendars, and to-do lists apparently qualified me enough to ensure a small parade of Southern belles made it down the aisle and the bride had a stress-free day… ok, ok, low-stress day. I’m no miracle worker.
