Banquet - Part IV

weather: mostly sunny
outside: 15°C
mood: happy
I changed yet again into my pink evening gown. Instead of wearing anything for a neck piece, I had a Swarovsky crystal butterfly tattoo. It worked out pretty well, from far away, it just looked like a patch of glittery, shiny things on my skin.

C did his speech:

    Hello family, friends and honoured guests. I first met the groom in Grade 8 on the Bantam Boys Basketball team. I remember he used to be this really skinny guy who couldn't play basketball. [C and W both play basketball very well] Now, he's still a guy who can't play basketball... but he's gained a little bit of weight... about 40 pounds. [That's a very generous estimate.]

    Then I went over to his house and he would beat me at Nintendo and other computer games, but never Street Fighter. [Another dig]

    Then he made the mistake of asking me to stay for dinner and then he could never get rid of me. All of a sudden, I was asked if I could be his Best Man. Of course, this was over dinner at his place. And I thought he was kidding, but then I realized it wasn't a dream at his stag. Let's just say that there were two distinct large marks that he left in the city. Let's just say he had carrots for dinner.

    Tonight, I stand here in front of the bride and groom's closest family and friends and I realize you are turning a new page in this storybook relationship that you have. I may hold the "official" title of "Best Man", but, in my eyes, W is the best man here. And you are marrying a guy who is not only a great person, but a great friend as well. I want to congratulate you both for FINALLY getting married. TEN YEARS?!?! **what-were-you-guys-THINKING??? shrug**

    I just want to say I wish your future is full of joy and good fortune. And I want to toast you both: To the bride and groom!

    [audience: To the bride and groom!]
After the Best Man's speech, we played the second game. They blindfolded Husband Guy and asked for ten "single women" volunteers in the crowd to come up and kiss Husband Guy. I was supposed to be one of the ten and he was supposed to guess which one was me.

After the blindfold went on, they got ten GUYS to come up: Karl, Stephen, Kingsley, Nigel, Allen, Mark, Clarence, Ben, Phil and Jasper. It was a hoot. =) Husband Guy picked #9, Phil. =D
