Writing Wrongs

June 13, 2006

The other day, while zipping along I-94, I spotted a truck ahead of me in traffic. It had its logo and business name on the back, which read:

Port-A-Welding

But because I was zipping along, listening to music, and only saw part of the truck initially, I thought it said:

Port-A-Wedding

And I thought what a cool idea for a business. No fuss, no muss, we bring the wedding to you. Kind of like a quickie wedding chapel, only on wheels. To save on overhead, the minister could also have a commercial driver’s license. You could have a mini-fridge stocked with champagne. There could be one of those awnings attached to the side of the truck/RV for outdoor weddings.

Really, think of the possibilities. Too busy to get married? Schedule a ceremony over your lunch hour. Invite the whole office. This has serious potential, I’m telling you. Wait for someone to take this idea and run with it. You heard it here first.

Speaking of careers, we took a poll on the way home yesterday on what we wanted to be when we grow up. The results are in:


Andrew: A geologist or a professional football player.

Kyra: A talent show-er or a pink mermaid. (We determined that a “talent show-er” is someone who performs in talent shows. Obviously. I think I saw an ad for a pink mermaid on craig’s list a while back.)

Mommy: a writer. Or a pink mermaid, cuz I think that pays pretty good.
