Some of the best things in life are, indeed, intermittent, but some of the beautiful things are still unwaveringly constant. I was there a few day ago when Mr. Intermittent and Mrs. Intermittent told friends, family, the State, God and whoever else would listen that they are in it for the long good haul. And let me tell you, the road ahead of those two is top notch: freshly paved and blessedly unending. When the stunning bride-to-be was escorted down the isle, I'm told the look on Dave's face was in the top 10 moments of a wedding already packed with soon-to-be classics (I desperately tried to subtly crane my neck to see around Dave Jon and the best man, but to no avail). Luckily I'm a kali-wielding tiger claw ninja man, because my tear-dabbing was as stealthy as it was girlish.
The previous night at the post-rehearsal dinner shindig the father of the groom, after getting us started with the toastmastering, was about to pass the mic old school to yours truly. Unfortunately, I only told him the forgettable/regrettable line of, "Aaw, I can't be first..." So I'm saying it now in a custom-made speech for the blog (with the benefit of not having to tone it down for Grandma): Dave and his lovely bride rock harder than AC/DC, are better friends than KG and JB and look better together than a really good collection of your favorite trade paperbacks. They are but mere mortals but their hearts and souls together transcend terra firma into the high country. For these two, ladies and gentlemen, in the words of so many great songs: everything's gonna be alright.
These last few days have been some of the best for me, and are made better knowing there are so many more down my muddy psychedelic moonshiner trail. Mine's a little narrow at the moment, without too much room for a hot little number to ride shotgun, but the wedding of those two did the lion's share of convincing me that it's time to start installing a rumble seat or something. I'm sure I speak for this blog's other shamefully oft-absent poster as well when I say: Congratulations and God Bless Casa del Intermittent!
