Professional Wedding Vows

Why The Addams Family? Why not!?

Next weekend, my very dear friend Amanda is getting married. As the countdown clicked on and the stress levels rose, we would talk about all that has to be done before the ceremony. You're practically working right until the moment you say “I do”. Amanda talked to me of the rush of organization, showers, and general madness of dealing with people. One area of particular stress for Amanda, was writing the vows. This led my brain to thinking. Amanda's wedding is the kick off of a late summer to fall wedding season for me, I have four to attend.

So I thought as a service to my friends, and those of you with your own wedding worries on your mind. I've taken it upon myself to create some vows that you are more than welcome to use for your own wedding. These are all gender neutral, so feel free to adapt them to suit your needs however you see fit. The vows below are perfect for any wedding or commitment ceremony. You even have my permission to photocopy them and include them in your wedding program. Now, without further ado, your professionally written wedding vows.

My darling, since you came into my life, things just haven't been the same. That rash cleared up, the jury acquitted me, and I feel like I'm walking on air. There are so many things about you that I love. The way that your nose curls up slightly. The way that you effortlessly manage to keep things running with ease. The way that you sneak up behind me and snipe me when we play Call of Duty on Xbox. During my first stint in prison, I used to lie awake at night, looking at the stars from behind the bars, and wondering if there was anyone for me. As I stand here today, committing myself fully to you,. I know the answer to that question.

Sweetness, when I first gazed upon your face, I was gnawing on a chicken bone in the ally behind the Food City. I thought you were the sheriff, and I ran. You, thinking I was an escapee from the nearby clinic, tackled me and we both fell onto a mound of empty egg crates by the dumpster. That night was pure magic, we laughed and got dip cones at the DQ. After learning we had so much in common, we went over to Farmer Jenkins' Farm and tipped all the cows over. Our love is strong and rigid, so much so that the men from those Viagra commercials will sing songs about it. I love you, my precious darling, and I always will.

This is when it would be a good idea to play some romantic song that is important to you. Something along the lines of “Sex Bomb” by Tom Jones, or “Lush Life” by Johnny Hartman. The overwhelming emotion of the vows, combined with these choices in music, will no doubt send everyone gathered for your special day to tears. It is my sincere hope, that if you do choose these vows, that it will make your wedding day embedded in the minds of those you love for years to come.

Blue Christmas Lights

Despite all the tinsel and glow, all the shinny faces and families rushing around in their SUVs and minivans, Christmas can be a difficult time of the year for some people. An example? Recently a friend of mine was talking about grocery shopping with her husband and children. She came across the seasonal display of Little Debbie cakes, and began to pick up two boxes to mail to her grandfather. Upon putting them in the cart, she remembered that her grandfather passed away this year, she quietly, and sadly, placed the boxes back on the shelf.
Before you get me wrong, I'm not hating on Christmas. I love this time of the year, genuinely, not in a “Up next on the Donnie and Marie Christmas Special is Andy Ross and he's gonna read that off some cue cards” way. I suppose why I feel a need to talk about this, is that I felt a little down last Christmas. It was odd, I didn't even feel enthusiastic about making my annual Christmas Mix CD, which has become something people actually…

Convincing Yourself You're Good.

I have Imposter Syndrome. Imposter Syndrome is that feeling that what you do isn't good enough, and that someone is gonna eventually figure out how woefully unqualified you are and kick you to the curb. One of the traits of my personality that I dislike is that I am way too hard on myself. Seriously, give my mind an inch and I will somehow figure out that I am the sole person responsible for the world's troubles.

Having Imposter Syndrome is kind of like playing the game Werewolf. My friends and I play a version of the game called One Night Ultimate Werewolf, in the game each player picks a card that gives them a specific role, either a villager or a werewolf, and the villagers all have distinct roles that they play on top of that--special abilities and the like. The object of the game is two fold, if you're a werewolf, you don't wanna be caught. If you're a village, you wanna catch the werewolves. Imposter Syndrome makes you feel like you're always in the role…

Seduction My Way

With Valentine’s Day next week many are starting to make plans for what they will do with their lover. Lately I’ve been getting numerous tweets asking me “Andy, you’re a well known stud muffin, what can I do to make Valentine’s Day most memorable?” Since I have much to say on this topic, I thought I’d take time this week and share my advice for a most special February 14th. 
Now you may have read that last paragraph and thought to yourself “Andy, I have no lover, why did you write something useless for me!?” Don’t worry friend, I got you. If you need a pick up a line to score the date of your dreams, simply get up the courage to walk up the one you’ve been dreaming about, take a deep breath, and tell them the following. “Hey, do you wanna fall over a cliff in love with me? ‘Cause I’m the yodeling guy from Price is Right and you just incorrectly guessed the price of a toaster oven.” Never fails. 
Now comes the task of picking the right restaurant for the date. At this late time, finding …
