soup

(no subject)

So, I was talking to one of my coworkers about what we were planning to do this weekend, and mentioned that we were going to church on Sunday to meet fairoriana's mother, who we're asking to officiate the wedding. Her church is a ways away from our house, and I was mentioning that we'd have to get up pretty early to go there. She just kinda smiled the "I know so much better than you" smile I get a lot from her and said that it was one of the things you had to do to get married. I joked that I'd be fine with getting a good friend certified online to perform the ceremony, and she responded quite seriously with "Now, don't cheat your mother out of a wedding."

For some reason, this reeeeeeeeally grates on my nerves. I know for a fact that my mother doesn't care if I get married by Bozo the Clown, so long as she can be there. I guess it just bothers me that this woman is telling me that doing one thing will "cheat" my mother out of something.

Must take more time to contemplate this. Think, think, think...
