Anyway...in the afternoon, Lydia went with the older girls to go shopping. They were rather successful and brought back some wonderful things. And some holes in some ears. But Lydia looks very grown up and beautiful. Then came meeting family members I've never met before. Cousin Vincenza, who is a 17 year old who must be some sort of supermodel. And for some reason she wouldn't let go of me. That is when I realised I picked up a bit of crazy down in St. Sebastians. I do not like people touching me if I don't know them. She's Aly's family, and I was terrified she was going to jab my side with a hot poker. Anyway, then I met her father, Cousin Alejandro and he was confused when Jacinta introduced me as her son. He said "David, what have you done with your hair?" and I think David was a tad insulted at that. Me, I just giggled. But then he hugged me and I had a panic attack. But I hid it well, thank you! Hopefully I'll get over that whole...DON'T TOUCH ME thing. Probably when lovely family members don't hot poker me in the side. Or...anywhere else.
Ahem. Best part of the night? During David's rehearsal dinner, Brian decided to be an arse. He walked up to David and inquired as to why he was getting married to a woman if he's gay. He could take a hint from 'the lesbos' instead. And Thomas, who had had enough today, just punched him in the arm. No hesitation. And Brian looked shocked. And everyone applauded Thomas and he's now been accepted as a cousin too!
Impotence and all.
David gets married tomorrow!!
