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.
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...
