Well, I’m not sure what I’m doing on New Year’s, either. I’d actually like to ask the Teeming Millions their opinion on the topic.
A few days ago I found out that a friend just got engaged. I’m really happy for her, the guy is great, etc., but there’s a catch. They’re planning on having the wedding on New Year’s! They want to time the ceremony so that they kiss at midnight, along with everyone in the congregation.
Under any other circumstances, I’d definitely go to this girl’s wedding. She’s not a best friend, but she’s more than just an aquaintance. But if I go, it means I WON’T be spending the evening with some of my other friends and family that I was hoping to.
Am I completely insane to think that this is inconsiderate of them? I mean, I realize they have a right to get married when and where they want to, but I also know she’ll be offended if I don’t go. And it’s a night I’ve been looking forward to for 10 years! And I know I’m not the only one who’s already made plans.
Well, anyway…what do you guys think? Would I be a complete jerk if I didn’t go?
