As in the soundtrack for our eventual wedding. Yep.
You are privileged indeed.
First off, I want to walk down the aisle to Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You, just as the brass starts.
I know, I know. There are so many great versions. The original…the Muse version… the Heath Ledger version, which is especially close to my heart. I see him and Julia Stiles in that movie – one of the first I ever saw at the cinema – as a precursor to Jessica and Marcus in the Sloppy Firsts series (how good would they have been to play the characters in a film adaptation?). In turn, I see Jessica and Marcus as having so many parallels to me and T for a host of reasons.
So I told him this. To which he responded: “Why can’t you just be NORMAL?”
I thought you knew who you were marrying, boy.
I was never going to go for Here Comes the Bride, was I? (It’s a bit overdone…) Fun fact: in our early semi-courtship, for some reason, I found myself humming that tune quite frequently when we were together. I still have no idea why.
