Fifty-One, Fifty-Two, Fifty-Three...

I went to the post office today to mail a package and the lady in front of me paid $6.79 entirely in change. Including 100 pennies NOT in a roll. She dug in her purse and pulled out fistfuls of change (I think she had only like 2 quarters). The poor postal worker was very apologetic to the rest of us in line but really, she was stuck. I mean the post office has to account for every penny and this lady had a right to pay in change. Seriously, when she brought out the pennies I almost stepped in and paid for it myself. Mercifully I got called over to the other counter but I couldn't believe it. By the time I left, she was still counting out the pennies and there were at least 4 or 5 disgruntled people in line behind her.

I stumbled onto your wedding site from 2001... I was tickled by the 'traditions' you were eschewing...and forgot to finish researching other websites for the day (I'm planning a wedding).
I really enjoy your writing--it's entertaining and enjoyable.
I also love Scout (I have a greyhound and a saluki and a lab mix...and a huge soft spot for beagles and all hounds).
