|At least I didn't have to buy a dress like this!|
I'm not going to spend too much time kvetching, though. I'm just going to skip out on the weekend trip. It's a long drive (three hours, probably, though it could be longer), money is tight in these parts, and I don't really know these girls well enough to enjoy a whole weekend drinking with them and finding attention-seeking cross-dressers "hilarious" (I don't know; it seems sort of exploitative to me). I'm sure she wouldn't mind if she realized that missing this event is the only way I'd be able to get her a wedding gift at all!
