Episode 069: “I do” Because I didn’t know better
Now we get insight on Misty and her story. We listen as she shares her story with a little help from Chris, their friend Glenn, and a few questions from our Podcast Hosts Leanne and The Boyfriend.
Misty was in college and was in band with most of her friends and her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was jewish and Misty was a christian. His name has not been revealed but I will refer to him as Creep. I feel the name suits him, and as this story unfolds I think you will too. Her boyfriend is well educated, worldly, outgoing, and comes from a family with money. He is methodical and always has an itinerary on what they do. Misty does give him a good argument at times – like we all do. Creep also has some Daddy issues.
Misty and Creep got engaged and planned a nice wedding. Misty was paying for the wedding and Creep was paying for the drinks at the reception and the honeymoon to Hawaii. Creep asked if his best friend (who was a woman) could be in the wedding as a bridesmaid and could they have a special dance at the reception. Misty agreed.
About a month or two before the big day, Misty had a bout of Bells Palsy. She sought treatment for it and within a week or so it was gone. But the Creep had his fun teasing her about it.
Creep didn’t have much luck asking friends to be his Best Man. Chris got along with him and volunteered to be in their wedding.
Nothing tickled me more than the Creep getting a case of Bells Palsy the week of their wedding.
During the wedding, The Creep verbally talks his itinerary to Misty -during the ceremony!
And they were married.
Months later they were at a gathering of all their friends when one of the guys started to give Misty a shoulder rub. She noticed Creep was showing his jealous side, and he went off into a bedroom and pouted. When she talked with him about later, he blamed her. Like I said, he’s a Creep.
