I have decided to start this blog 18 days after saying yes to my new fiancé and 4 hours after leaving my first ever wedding fair.
I have been planning my wedding since the age of 12. Side note, I should have known aged 12 that if I was planning the ideal length of a bride’s train then a bride probably wasn’t going to be who I met at the altar. But in the short 18 days I’ve spent on this side of a proposal I have found that the wedding business caters to the bride first and foremost, sometimes exclusively.
So what does a groom do in preparation for his promise to his groom? The next step of our chapter will either give us the answer to this question or I’ll have to answer it for myself.
So ends the chorus of ‘My Funny Valentine’ from Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart’s 1937 Broadway musical Babes in Arms. In 2012, I (Jay) appeared in the 2012 revival at the Union Theatre, London, playing the leading role of Valentine White. One London reviewer said “James Lacey is pleasantly plump as a young Mickey Rooney”. Great. This could be one of a myriad of reasons why we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.
The point of ‘My Funny Valentine’ is unrequited love for something who maybe isn’t all that remarkable. She sings “your looks are laughable, unphotographable”. Hun, I relate after lockdown 3.0. I’ve not invested in my physical health anywhere near as much as I’ve invested in Amazon. In fact this third lockdown is, it seems for everyone, the hardest. It’s in January when no one has any money or motivation to be jolly after Christmas, there isn’t any sun, and there are new COVID variants popping up like ITV dating shows.
