Just so the rest of y’all can share the funny

One of my dear friends tied the knot in Vegas over Thanksgiving… this is her description of her Aunt’s congratulatory card:

Hi Gina,

I had to share this with you, as one of the few I know who can really appreciate it. My Aunt, a Very Well Bred Old Southern Gentlewoman, wrote me a note congratulating me on getting married. It starts with the usual: congrats, happy, etc. etc … “And what an unusual wedding! I hope your parents were too pleased to be critical of the offbeat way you did it!!” Oh, lawd have mercy, I practically fell over laughing. I do love a well-bred passive-aggressive smackdown.

*Names changed to protect my dear friend, but published with her permission.
