Our Wedding Night . . ."details"

Then
May 29, 1969


Now,
43 years later.

Happy Anniversary to us!

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Now, you knew I couldn't just let this be without telling a story. . .
A long time ago, in a place far, far, away (Oklahoma), I was a young, naive, bride.  The wedding was over and off we went to a local hotel for our wedding night. 
When we arrived at our hotel room, I realized something was amiss.  The lovely hotel suite was built in such a way, with an arched opening to display the bathroom,
SANS A DOOR!!!
No door?!
Really?  Who EVER thought this
was a good idea????
This made the nervous young bride even more nervous.  No explanation needed.

I may have been nervous and naive
but I was also creative and hungry.
I had not eaten all day - "nerves".

I sent Mister back out into the night
to buy food for his starving bride.
Poor guy took out all alone to find food, driving our car with "Just Married" written all over it.  Quite the sight.

While he was gone, with lightning speed, I bathed, perfumed and readied myself for my groom, crisis averted.  Note to all builders: Every bathroom should have a door.  Just sayin. . .

I'll leave the rest of the story to your imagination,
except to say, I may have been wearing a beautiful white negligee as we ate our burgers, and we have had great fun telling this story
over and over and over and over. . .

Ooh, I would hate that. Even after nearly 31 years of marriage I want a door. At least you came up with a creative solution. Happy anniversary!

Oh, Dear! No door. Terry and I still do not share a bathroom so escially, not on your honeymoon.

That's a great story! I love those sweet stories of our naive selves long ago. My husband knocked over a little lamp that had lots of crystals hanging from it like a mini chandelier. He was so nervous - I'll never forget him trying to put them all back on... The other story was the wedding night negligee. In my innocence I somehow thought that a gown that had ties that wrapped around and around toga style would be a good idea. He could have spun me like a top! (Fortunately he didn't...)

Happy Anniversary! Fun story...and just the right amount of info to keep it friendly...and it reminded me of our wedding night..I wasn't hungry even though I hadn't eaten but, to make it more romantic, I threw up...yup, and Jack didn't even head for the hills! Thankfully we had a bathroom door!
