Humorous and mostly awkward things are often said around the Kooi dinner table. It might be a story, a sudden thought, a suggestion. Tonight’s saying was more of a suggestion and “great idea” all mixed into one.
I was attempting to tell Will about my cake topper search. I have been searching, and searching, and searching for a normal looking bride and groom but haven’t had any luck. Will was supposed to be searching, and searching, and searching for Beatles figurines, but I know better. So the conversation went something like this:
Me: Will! I found a lady on Etsy who will customize our cake toppers for us!
Will: Could we use superheroes as our cake topper?
Seth: That would be awesome.
Mendy to Will: You could be the Green Lantern.
Will: Yeah!! Holly. I’ll be the Green Lantern and you can be Wonder Woman.
Me: No. She dresses inappropriately.
Will: Oh. Well… You could be… You could be Cat Woman!
Me: Like she’s any better?
Seth: That would be awesome if you were Cat Woman! Then you would get to hold a whip in your hand!
As… tempting as it is to be portrayed as Cat Woman holding a whip on top of our Beatles cake, I’m still going to go with just a regular bride and groom. I know. You’re probably disappointed.
