Well Amigos, it was bound to happen sooner or later and now it’s a current event. The old woman Slow and Pretty have applied for a marriage license right here in Columbia, South Carolina. Well, I never. Seriously. I never thought they would be able to make honest women of themselves after almost fourteen years of the ups and downs of married life without the benefits of legal paperwork.
And of course, leave it to them to be interviewed in their car by Fox News just as they were leaving the courthouse. That’s right – look them up in cyberspace: http://www.foxcarolina.com/story/26734913/gay-marriage-licenses-issued-in-south-carolina. The old woman Slow has a few words about icing on the cake, which is naturally what she would be thinking about on her Marriage Application Day. Don’t blink or you’ll miss them, but there they are big as Ike.
Pretty’s family is from the upstate Greenville/Spartanburg area so it was only fitting that the Fox station doing the interview was from Greenville. Imagine her aunts and uncles and cousins sitting down for dinner watching the Evening News and asking each other if that wasn’t Pretty on TV trying to marry the old woman Slow. Oh my goodness.
They look happy, don’t they? I haven’t heard any talk about weddings so that’s probably a different topic for on down the road.
Get me outta here Percy…all this good cheer exhausts me…I’m afraid it might be contagious…
