a cautionary note

Note to self: do not go up to someone you haven't seen in a few months, and loudly ask her, "isn't your wedding coming up in less than a month?!" She just might pull you aside (as you're already kicking yourself) and quietly tell you that the wedding is off, and she just came out.

{Just in case you were out there flattering yourself that nothing could be as messed-up as your plans.}

It broke my heart a little to hear it on the day that my state's Supreme Court decided that she's no longer allowed to get married. Because I'm sure the effects of her decision weren't already traumatic at all.

But I threw my arms around her and said "Congratulations!" anyway.
