    Even my wife said "normally I'd agree with the wife but, the island sounds like a once in a lifetime thing" then followed with "I'd let you go cause thats an important thing if so very few people get to experience it"

    Weird

    Ozzy, stand up to your wife. Let her know you don't want to go to some silly wedding and miss a quite possibly once in a lifetime experience. Tell her up front that you are willing to put up with whatever she deems necessary (i.e. cut off for a month), you just don't care.
    I've done it....It's not pretty....BUT the benefit is that next time she'll at least listen to your side of the story...

    I think you should go to the bog, but you're going to have to be super-nice to the wife and buy presents. She's going to be pissed either way - pissed that you even asked, and pissed if you go.

    Ok, this is how it goes: you are going to the wedding. I know it's painful, but there is no escaping this sort of thing. I've tried, and it don't work. You could beg out of a funeral with more ease.

    However, from this you will earn BIG CREDIT. Ruby owes you! So the next time you need some slack you are entitled to it.

    Not much solace there I know, but maybe you can visit me soon and we will take in Sloperville Bog providing I can secure permission as the land is now posted!

    Meanwhile, try to get a glimpse up all the dresses, there really isn't much more to commend the experience of being at an "unknown" wedding, unless you like bad catering.

    I had one last weekend. I had to wear a suit. I sat next to a Born Again Christian who was into converting me. Scotch was going for 7.00 per shot, and the day was picture perfect (why can't folk get married in the winter when there is nothing to do anyways?) To make it worse, all the pretty girls were in long dresses. I couldn't have gotten into any trouble if I brought it with me, and I was fresh out.

    Still, I have that CREDIT slip, and the time will come when I use it...........

    How about.. You get dressed and ready.. get in the car and hit the road.. then somehow manage to make a wrong turn "she must have said turn left here... thats whats written down?" (if you can forge your wifes handwriting thats even better).. next thing you know you are "accidently" at the bog (guess its a good thing your sloppy bog clothes are still in the trunk from the last trip huh?) hehe

    Have fun

    That's as bad as being forced to watch infomercials all day. You deserve extra credit for having to put with that.
