"Isn't Ironic"

I remember singing Alanis Morissette in high school while driving around with friends.
I knew all the lyrics.
I think I even had the CD.
And this line has stuck with me forever:
"It's like rain on your wedding day."
I guess no one wants it to rain on their wedding day.
I guess it is a bad omen of sorts.
Today as it started to rain, I could not help but remember that song.

When Roger and I picked a date for our wedding we took rain into consideration.
Among other things.
Like no hurricane season for us so that eliminated June through end of October.
No major holidays.
Cooler weather.
And I did not want to be on my period or PMSing.
That left about two weekends - November 10, 2007 & February 23, 2008.
November 11th was Roger's parents' anniversary so we picked February.

It does not rain much in Florida in February.
The average is 0.04 inches.
So I did not worry too much about rain.
Not that we were having an outside wedding but I did want outdoor pictures and I did not want the hassle of being out in the rain when getting to and from places.

February 23, 2008.
I woke up about 9:30am or so.
Thank God for antihistamines letting me sleep in.
I looked out my window.
It was pouring.
Rain, rain, rain.
Really? This has to be a joke.
I was not too worried knowing it was Florida and the weather could change at the drop of a hat.
It did change.
It was sunny about five minutes before I needed to leave for the church.

But, it rained on my wedding day.
It fucking rained on my wedding day.
Not sure if I believe it was an omen or anything but...
