I should absolutely be working on school work right now…but whatever.
I’m working on making my wedding invite less ampersandy.
You know …the ‘&’ sign?
I just like the word ‘ampersand.’
Due to the proclivity of more than one parental set per party, it appears that there are a number of ampersands in the invite. Part of it’s my fault because I’m doing ‘daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Hisname & Hername Lastname’ instead of ‘daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Hisname Lastname,’ but I have my reasons for that. The Boy didn’t realize that I’m not listing my bio-dad on the invite, whereas both his father and stepmother AND his mother are being listed. The Boy also didn’t realize that I was listing out first names…and I got a very southern, “Well, you’ll be Mrs. Myname Lastname…” and he promptly received a hearty laugh.
I’m still me, buddy.
I think I’m just going to leave it. I have removed one line that, by its own right, removes two ampersands. I believe that will be sufficient. I had a difficult enough time figure out the parentals to begin with…since he’s dad is a ‘Dr.’, and it just looked weird to not have Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. for the other names.
Oh well…It’s just an invitation. Maybe I’ll give a prize to whomever remembers just how many ampersands there are…
