Day 180 - Wedding Toast

Day 180.

As some of you may have heard, my older brother Lance is getting married tomorrow. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited for him. One nagging thing though--as the best man, I have to give a big toast tomorrow and I'm kind of nervous.


Mostly, I'm nervous because whenever I get up to practice my little speech, I inevitably forget what I had written and just segue into a weird ad-libbed version of Paul Child's toast in Julie & Julia.

"Lance, you are the butter to my bread and the breath to my life. 
I love you, darling girl."

I'm sure how you can all see how that might be a little awkward at the wedding.

Fuck.

This is what my life has devolved into.

  1. Dude, just give Julie and Julia quotes with all the names switched out. It's almost like you've had 180 days of practice.

    And then post a video of it.

  2. I am sure Lance will understand that you were merely expressing your feelings about your two greatest passions: family and Julie&Julia.
