    I got my flu shot today. I saw that the drug store had them and I thought: I better get it now before the season starts so I don't get sick.

    I was responsible for the Pepsi delivery guys having a MAJOR accident in Target because I had a garbage can lid on my head while shopping with a friend a few years ago. It looked like a space helmet. I couldn't resist. I had it on my head and was talking to her out the flap saying: "This is eagle one to mother ship, come in mother ship." When we heard a loud crash and saw 12 packs of pepsis scattered on the floor with some broken open. One single can rolled right over next to my foot. I snatched that lid off my head and my friend and I booked out of there. And I was about 40 or 41 when it happened.
    So yeah, Queenb, I'll go to Home Depot and put garbage can lids on my head. It's fun. But let's make sure they aren't getting a delivery when we do.
    Thanks for the laugh MRD that was to funny.

    How about simplified honesty? If she asks, say, "I'm honored that you asked me, but I don't do weddings."
    Count your blessings!

    I guess I just don't want to make her wedding about ME, if at all avoidable. That just seems rotten.

    Just say - you'd rather not and leave it at that. If she insists, say, you'd REALLY rather not.

    Ya Shay, tell her you are coming to visit me and we're going to Target to put garbage can lids on our heads.

    I'd just say what the others said. If she makes an issue of it, then just say: I don't believe in marriage for anyone.

    Oh, do I hear that! His visit to New York in May cost me at least an extra $10 in cab fare one night...

    That's what I would say. I'd rather not. Simply put. Period. It's YOUR prerogative to attend, or not. By simply saying "I'd rather not", or "I won't be able to" could be any number of reasons you don't have to justify.
