Just In Time

Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #80 - Sudden Moments  (posted by Rosemary)

"I would love to read what you have to say about sudden events which people somehow sensed coming – and also those which they didn’t. Whether traumatic or joyous, your own or someone else’s, real or fictional – that’s up to you."

We were due to wed 
in June.  my brother-in-law
to-be decided to
throw a bachelor
party bash for his
only brother, who
is quite the opposite
of him.  My husband
is not gregarious,
does not sing
in public, and dislikes
parties, and attention.
As this event was still
in the planning stages
with all the bells
and whistles, a
coworker and good friend
of my husband got wind 
of it.  Fortunately, he 
did the right thing,
and told us.  The
big party was quashed
before the first
drink, and stripper
could show up.
