Was scheduled for two-fifteen,

Got started ’round quarter to three…

She nearly clobbered me just before–

My “late” question considered mean.

She was finalizing the fit

Of bridesmaids gowns and such…

Had a long round trip,

At the time I wasn’t worth much!

Yet the thing went through,

Mostly without a hitch…

My youngest nephew’s howl

Gave funny bones a twitch.

Twenty-seven years—June third–

Nineteen eighty-nine…

It doesn’t feel like yesterday

But has been an enriching time!
