Hail To Thee Dear Brookland-Cayce...

Two weddings in two weeks!

I have the honor of being in a wedding this weekend. My friends and volunteers, Jarred and Emily, are getting married on Saturday. Even though we've only known each other for 2 years, Jarred is one of my great friends and asked me to be a part of the festivities. So I said yes. I said yes because it was a great way to honor two of my dearest friends and because, quite frankly, I look great in a tux. Which is the subject of this post...

I went to Friar Tux this afternoon to pick up my suit and, it was there, that I had an interesting interaction. As I entered, I noticed the presence of about 5 high school aged dudes picking up their various tuxes (all white and pimp versions, complete with chain). I finally got to the front and told the girl my name. She looked for a few minutes but couldn't find it. Turns out she had spelled it TREELE instead of TREECE. I told her it was for a wedding and she looked up the name of the groom.

She apologized and said, "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know it was for a wedding. I thought you were here to pick up your tux for the prom." "Really?" I said.

I don't think anyone's mistaken me for a high school student since I was... well, in high school.

I was a nice little boost to the self esteem...
