I’m taking a break from
procrastinating working on my Grad School Application torture stuff, and the piece I’m writing for Alive’s January/ Bridal Issue. I’m so excited that I’ll see my name in print but I’m really struggling with a title. I hate turning to alliteration, but I may have to..Wow Weddings! Worldly Weddings….All of my ideas are terrible. At our editorial meeting, I suggested a ‘Wedding Vow Mad-libs’ so if they include that, please note that the idea came from yours truly.
In fact: here’s a treat
further way for me to avoid real work: Please list:
1. your name
2. another persons name
4. transitive verb (note- a transitive verb is a verb that needs a related object in the sentence. A good hint is any word that describes an active emotion; ie: desire, prefer, accept, or anything that needs ‘to’ in front of it- to kick, to lacerate)
5. transitive verb
6. name of illness or ailment
10. article of clothing
11. transitive verb
16. article of clothing
18. name of a singer/performer
20. name of a place
21. adverb (words ending in ‘ly’)
*Note- please read in the style of ‘the Impressive Clergyman’ from ‘The Princess Bride’….and tweausre youw wuv!
Do you, your name, take other person’s name, to be your adjective wedded spouse?
Do you promise to transitive verb and transitive verb them, in name of illness and in health as long as you both shall verb?
I now pronounce you noun and noun. You may now lift the article of clothing and transitive verb your spouse.
The congregation will please verb and greet the adjective couple.
Now cut the noun, toss the noun, remove the article of clothing, and verb on the dance floor to the musical stylings of name of singer/performer. Then wave goodbye to the adjective couple as they depart for their honeymoon in name of place. Adverb ever after!
