Like most Southern Californians I have been married more than once but at my first wedding we explicitly asked the guests not to bring children. Kids are great as long as they’re someone else’s and I’ve been to too many weddings where the kids were a big problem so we decided to invite our guests to let their offspring stay home.
Of course one guest brought their child anyway and, like most children at most weddings, this little guy was bored out of his mind. His method for entertaining himself wasn’t unlike what children at so many wedding receptions I’ve been to do – he ran as fast as he could around the outside of the unoccupied dance floor during dinner.
A combination of a rich meal that he’s not used to and all that circular exercise was more than he could handle, and he came over to see if my new wife could assist him with his upset stomach which was becoming increasingly worse with each step he took. My wife immediately recognized that this volcano was going to blow and as she gathered her wedding dress her prediction became reality.
Fortunately, the lava from this volcano narrowly missed her gown. Still, I’ve seen other kids do the same thing although usually they just erupt on their parents, not the bride.
