Alright, guys, I’m going to level with you. I want to get married. I desperately want to get married. I deny that fact up and down 98 percent of the time, but sometimes things happen that make me realize that despite my aversion to dating, I totally do want to fall in love. Right now is one of those times that reminds me that somewhere, deep down inside, I am kind of a romantic.
My friend Mylynda, of Indie College fame, is preparing for her wedding later this month to a guy I’ve never met but I’ve heard great things about. Being the musically inclined pal that I am, I offered Mylynda a mix of songs that, were I to ever get married, I’d want played at my wedding. And being the overachiever that I am, I couldn’t just let it rest at one mix. Instead, I had to make two!
I doubt I’m going to get married. I’m 27 and I’ve yet to have a relationship I took seriously. I’ve treated guys so horribly that Tim Kasher would call me cold. Even so, I hope to get it right one day and when that day comes, it’ll all culminate with the hippest wedding of all time and as the guests walk into the dusty barn I’ll say my “I do’s” in, this is the mix of songs that’ll playing. Just in case that doesn’t happen though, I’d hate for such a great array of songs to go to waste. So here you go, Mylynda. Have my dream wedding. And just wait because the mix for the reception is gonna be killer!
