Don't you just wish there was a delete button in life, like the one on Facebook? It would be amazing, you could delete those moments which you wish never happened, like the awkward moment when you say what you're thinking out loud.....whoops....

So here we are, in a room with the parents, cousins (haven't figured out how or why we are related) and family friends - women and thier husbands who have been forcefully dragged along to this pointless social occasion, just like me. 

"Oh, she looks beautiful!" - it's about the fifth time I've heard that line along with "What a lovely couple!"  They are all admiring a picture of a couple on their wedding day, it's being passed around on someones mobile phone. 

"Aren't mobiles just fantastic!" shouts my aunt - this coming from the aunt that earlier on TODAY, declared them to be evil, you should have heard her, she just kept going on and on and on about how they are ruining her children, "my children don't even talk to each other, they text instead....they spend so much time on those things....tapping away....no social skills....so I've banned them". What a load of rubbish! 

It's funny how people say one thing one minute and another two minutes later huh. The irony of it all. 

So the mobile has been passed to me, and it's my turn to admire the lovely couple, but I can't help but notice the clothes. Now, don't get me wrong, everyone is allowed to like different things, but seriously, this couple have lost the plot! Her dress is amazing, you know, typical white, beads, delicate and all that, but the groom! It looks like he is wearing her dress. His shirt is made out of, what looks like to me, the same material as the wedding dress. He looks like he is wearing a suit made out of her wedding dress. That is just FREAKY. He is sparkling!!! And so I open my big gob "what is he wearing?!" 

....and that's the part where everyone, EVERYONE, stops their yapping and stare at me. I can feel their gazes sinking into me, burning through my brain, their sharp intake of breath as they hear what I just said. My eyes go wide as I try to think what I should do, it seems like forever, but they just keep looking at me! So I laugh, say "Oh, it's lovely!" in a really happy, jolly way, like absolutely nothing has happened, and I quickly pass  the phone on to the next person. 

Whoops indeed! Could seriously have done with a delet button there!
