Not for me; I’m already married. My brother is, too, but next week he and his wife will have a special second marriage ceremony in her hometown: Shangrao, China.
Late September/early October of a presidential-election season is not the time of year I’d have picked to be away from work for a week and a half. Among other things, I’ll miss the first debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
But it’s important to them, and to me, that as much of our family as possible is there to celebrate with them. So you’ll have to find someone else to parse that debate with. (Not to worry, I’ll be back for their second debate and the vice-presidential debate, and everything that comes after that. But commenting will be in moderation starting now, and until I return.)
In the meantime, wish them luck as a couple — and all of us luck surviving that 14-hour-plus flight. And I’ll see y’all back here when I return on Monday, Oct. 8.
