A friend of mine got married last weekend, and I was one of her bridesmaids. It was a beautiful wedding, and also unexpectedly exciting. As it so happens, finding yourself sitting down slowly sipping juice during the end of the ceremony is quite exciting. And having at least 4 people rush up to you during the ceremony to see if you're okay is even more exciting. I don't actually remember what all happened, to tell the truth. One moment, there I was...standing there wishing the sermon would end (after 20 minutes of it going strong and showing no signs of stopping), the next moment I found myself somewhat lightheaded, sweating, and grasping at the stage in front of me. The rest of it is a somewhat blurred memory in which I was told to take off my heels, set down into a chair, and told to drink juice (which, apparently, the maid of honor had run down the aisle to get for me). The sermon? It ended very quickly after that. I had people thank me.
