One Score, And Very Nearly Two Years Ago...

I've been going back and forth on whether or not I should post this one.  It feels mean, in a way, and I don't want to be mean, because I really like this guy.  I flirted wildly with him when I was 15 and in Norway for the first time.  I never kissed him, but I probably should have, even though it turned out for the best that I didn't, because he just happens to be the cousin of my current, and most favored Mister.

Anyway.  I went to his wedding in Brussels last month.  Not Mister's.  Obviously.  The cousin's.  The guy's.  I'm on my second glass of port.  Whatever.  It was a nice little wedding--rich in champagne, and retro 80's pop for the dance portion of the evening. 

Imagine my surprise, though, when I get his tasteful and, I might add, very prompt Thank You in the mail today, only to discover that I attended the wedding of none other than Abraham fucking Lincoln:



Minus the fetching goatie, of course.  Prettier wife too.  But, seriously.  Have you ever?

(I am assuming so, at least, since I have only seen Mister, Mister's dad, and now the pic of his cousin... but I am pretty sure I am correct) :)

No, but see Trace, you can't say that. That's exactly the kind of mean I didn't want to dig up. My point is, the picture makes the dude look like Abraham Lincoln. That is all.

??? I was being complimentary to Mister there. Your post came across oddly worded - sorry for the confusion.

Oh that's hillarious, he does look like Abe! And something else that's made me chuckle this morning, is the Word Verification I had to enter for this comment - frizeess Isn't that the serum stuff you use to straighten your hair????

Anyhoo have a lovely Hogmanay and love and hugs to all. xxx

Does he look this much like Lincoln in real life, or is it just this photo? It's the eyes isn't it? Funny. And I remember when you wanted to bring him back to the States along with a kitty!
Jilly, my word verification is "sturd". Is that a cross between a stud and a turd???

Hey Queenie - it could be a cross between stupid and absurd but I like your guess better!

Hope you had a lovely Holiday Season. xxx
