Flash Fiction #58

White wedding

BILLY IDOL

Today was the most exciting, important and defiant day in Jenn and Tony’s lives. They had been thrilled that the city had granted them exclusive use of this big gazebo in the park.

After taking care of City Hall paperwork, they had joined their friends here. The non-traditional caterers were set up outside, and inside, they had TUNES. The thing about Canadian weather was, if you didn’t like it, wait five minutes and it would change, but it was only Sept. 21, the equinox.

“Well Jenn, you did say you would also have liked a white wedding. You got one!”

Got to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

    weather can change in 5 minutes? So Newfoundland is not all that different than the rest of the country. Except for this miserable Julember…brrr

      I may have to cut back on the ‘How Old I Am’ jokes. 😳
      But Billy is British, and up here they play the shit out of his stuff on the radio because it qualifies at a 50% level for Federally mandated “Canadian Content.”. On local stations, all four Beatles are still alive, and Mick Jagger hasn’t gone thru puberty yet. Anything to protect us from Shania Twain, Senile Celine Dion, and Justin Bieber. 😯

      It’s kinda pretty, in its own way, and they’ll be indoors.
      As usual, I’m writing from experience, just not my own. If you’ve read the account of my wedding day, you know it involved a lot more ice and snow. While the wife had left ‘The Church’, she hadn’t left religion.
      I’ve known a few of these free spirits, no church, just a City Hall civil ceremony, and a celebration with friends. 😆

    I can’t decide which amuses me more, the story or the comments. In any case, great story.

      A good story often produces good comments, educational and amusing – or so I’m told 😯
      The post that started me blogging got FreshlyPressed, and the comments went on almost to 600, half of them of course, the author’s replies. 😆
