One more thing...

It's funny how life turns out...

I attended a wedding on Saturday..(my mom's cousin's daughter)..lots of relatives and local people...I ended up going to the wedding by myself...due to Him not having his shit together stuff done in time to accompany me there.

I hate going to stuff alone.

It's amazing what a great seat one can get as a single person, arriving 5 minutes before the wedding is to begin...4th row from the front...aisle seat...anyways...I digress...

As I was escorted to my seat...I see to my dismay that I am about to be seated right next to my old boyfriend's (high school love) mom and dad...not a lot of choice at this point...I had to accept the seat..besides, as I said..great view!

We chatted a bit after the ceremony, while we were waiting to be "let go" ...I always hate that part...the receiving line...always people you don't know...do you hug a complete stranger, just cause he/she just got married?

Anyways...on to the reception...as I am seated at a table waiting starving and eyeing up the food table for the bride and groom to arrive...They (old boyfriend's parents) came and asked if they could sit with me...

I spent the entire evening chatting with the person that very well could have been my mother-in-law...

It is strange how life turns out...Who knows, maybe if I would have went that direction instead of the direction I did go...Life would have been a whole lot different...better? i don't know....

It was a pleasant visit and it would be fun to be a fly on the wall if she mentions to the old boyfriend (in front of his wife) that she spent the evening chatting with me....I know...catty...but...it Would be fun...
