A collection of grievances, memories, occasional musings, and everyday happenings

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?

Me: No.

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.
