Good morning crew,
You can always tell how you rate as a wedding guest by where you are seated at the reception.
I don't want to say the wife and I were an afterthought at the wedding this Saturday last, but we were seated in the back of the room right next to the janitor's closet and the kitchen entrance.
The other guests at our table included the brother of a second cousin and his date, an old neighbor who had moved away but was still on the Christmas card list, a co-worker of the groom who he apparently still owed some money, and one guy who turned out to be the janitor. One of the guests didn't show up and he didn't want the food to go to waste.
That's how I found out where the janitor's closet was.
Still, it was nice to be included.
Laugh it up,

A man went to see his doctor to go over his blood work results. As soon as he entered the office, the doctor said to him, "I just looked at your results. You're lucky that you came in to see me today..."
The man suddenly became nervous and asked, "Why? What's wrong with my blood work?"
"Oh nothing! It's just that I'll be out of the office tomorrow," replied the doctor.

My uncle was giving me the grand tour of his house. The bathrooms had excessively mirrored walls but his wife preferred not to look at herself in such a compromising position. She even went so far as to place a "modesty plant" so that it obscured the view.
Now I don't think there is anything wrong with mirrored walls in the bathroom. I told my uncle: "You should be able to sit and reflect."
