Another tragic victim of the double-surprise. People, please remember to stagger the springing of joyous news upon loved ones. Sudden birthday parties immediately followed by sudden proposals is a recipe for fainting.
And I thought the wedding ceremonies at the weddings I've attended felt like they took forever! Imagine being at a 60-degree angle about to go over the top of a roller coaster. That's me in the back shouting, "HURRY UP AND SAY 'I DO'!" I blame my crazy on the altitude.
