by the power vested in me by the state of new mexico & my free downloadable certificate . . .

P1010022Yikes! A dream has come true. My friends have asked me marry them. You know, to each other. Not me to them. That would be silly. Although one of them is my domestic partner according to Costco. That is a whole nother story. I am also rabidly pro gay rights.

So, now it is time to me to step up & shut up. I wanted to do this. I “manafestered” it.  Some would say “You called this into your life.” My Big Sister would say “suck it up.” She’d say in a bigger, bolder, all caps font but she’d say it. And, she’d be right. Isn’t that what it all boils down to anyway?

I want to do this, have wanted to do this for a long time & am going to do it. I am thrilled that my first time will be with these particular friends. (and, yes, they are particular, in an extremely loveable, odd sort of way) I especially want to do a good job.  The heat is on. Everyone is going to be looking. I’ve already written down some ideas & informed the bride that I will need to counsel with them about the whole wedding. I’ve realized that besides writing the thing, I am going to have to direct the flow. There’s a lot more to this than just pretty words. I think I’ll be ok. I hope I’ll be ok.

Oh hey, all eyes on me, said the shy girl. If I’m gonna act like that, better shine. Anxiety shall not be allowed to rule. It can exist but not rule. 

But, eeeeeeee, I’m nervous.

  1. lol. I’ve been asked to get officiated and wed my friends, and was Googling for some traditional phrases like “by the power vested in me”, and your blog came up.

    I think I’ll put on a vest like yours just before I give that line!

    • wondering whatever became of you & your officiating. My couple have finally set a date . . . New Year’s Eve at midnight! That should be fun.

      I also downloaded an ordination certificate from The Dudeist Priest, based on the teachings of Dude from The Big Lebowski if you are interested.
