18. My older sister’s wedding.
My parents originally weren’t going to attend because she was marrying a Jew and they were conservative-Christians who were against them being together (and very vocal about it) from day one.
My dad cheated on my mom and was in the process of leaving her for his secretary, but they both decided to attend the ceremony and act like they were still together for my sister’s sake. “Awkward” doesn’t even begin to describe that scenario.
The groom’s came from a very wealthy family, so most of the people there were the “hootie-patootie” types I can’t stand to be around.
My dad decided to make a spectacle of himself, so he got drunk and insulted some of the groom’s family members.
My older brother couldn’t make it to the wedding because he and his wife were expecting their baby right around the same date. Trust me if I could have gotten some girl knocked-up to get out of going I would have….
