And Then My Cousin Married a Priest...

Me: An old family friend, Father Ed, who married Chris...
B: Who?
Me: Father Ed who married Chris...
B: Have I ever met this person in my life?
Me: No.
B: Then how am I supposed to know him?
Me: THAT IS WHY I AM EXPLAINING IT TO YOU.
B: Who is Chris?
Me: What? Christina, my cousin.
B: Well I didn't know she was married before.
Me: Huh?
B: I didn't know she was married before to Ed.
Me: OH MY GOD!! WHAT??
B: Ed who married Chris?
Me: OH MY GOD!! WHAT??
Me: ...
Me: Listen, when two people decide to get married NOT in Vegas, and they do it in a Catholic church, it is a PRIEST that marries them. Hence, Father Ed married Chris. He wasn't married TO her. OH MY GOD!!
B: You need to rephrase that. How was I supposed to know?
Me: You didn't know that priests don't get married?




*B would like the world (at least the world that reads this blog) to know that this conversation was entirely my fault due to my improper usage of the phrase "married Chris."

**I would like the world to know that I cannot conceive of any time where a conversation about a priest marrying someone equates to someone being married to a priest.

***Oh...and I usually refer to the guy who married Chris as "her husband."

Yeah, my aunt has been dating a priest for AT LEAST 25 years. Crazy Catholics.

I can understand the confusion. I think maybe this has something to do with me being related to B though?

April - um, your aunt is wrong on so many levels, but even she would agree she cannot marry a priest. Am I right?

Blaez - I am glad to hear it :) I will head on over to your blog!

Andhari - I'm telling B you said he is slow :) Just kidding. Looking back I can see how he thought that.

Jennifer - it may just very well be because you are related. Or not Catholic.
