Yet Another Thing I Never Saw Myself Doing When I left High School

My preferred bridal show emcee get-up

About a week ago my friend Rox asked me if I could do her a huge favor. As a consequence this afternoon I found myself in the exhibition hall of a large local resort, jabbering into a microphone about organza and tulle as I hosted a bridal fashion show in front of several hundred people. Who knew such a thing as a bubblegum pink vest and ascot combo existed, or that when properly motivated a handful of models can change dresses 5 times each in 45 minutes?

I wonder what I will find myself doing next. As I always say, stand still long enough and eventually everything comes past.
