Today’s the day we get married! It will start shortly when Dennis and I ride down Broadway together with crowds on every side of us. We wanted an open convertible but settled for a closed car. It will still go down Broadway, except underground. And it will be a line of cars coupled together for safety. Yes, they’ll be that many people riding downtown with us. Almost of them will pretend not to know us, so we can be alone with our thoughts, and our free newspapers.
When we arrive at City Hall we’ll be personally greeted by (a photo of) Mayor Bloomberg. Then when enter the great marble building (formerly the DMV), a NYC government official will hand us a piece of paper and utter those immortal words: “Don’t lose this, or you’ll lose your turn to get married.”
I don’t know exactly what happens next, but we’re looking forward to all the pomp and circumstance a wedding at City Hall entails!
I’ll report again online and here after the ceremony is over.
