In which Primo and I go to my (second? third? once removed?) cousin's wedding and the leftovers are fabulous
The cousin I met at my great-uncle's funeral - Amber - got married and she invited Primo and me.
It was fun and fabulous and my great-aunt, who is 94 years old, looked elegant and lovely and she was as sharp as a tack.
We got to meet other cousins. We had a ton of fun.
As we were leaving, I noticed there were untouched pieces of wedding cake on our table. I joked with my dad's cousin Jim (who is Amber's uncle) that I should wrap the cake and take it home - that that is The Way of Our People.
He rushed to get me some paper napkins.
I had been joking, but after he went through all that effort, I had to take the cake.
I wrapped it and brought it home and put something on facebook about how My People Do Not Waste.
To which my cousin, Amber, replied, "Hey! WE HAD TO-GO CONTAINERS FOR THE CAKE!"
I. Love. My. People.
