Giving the Neighbours Something To Gossip About by Rhiannon Willson
I think if I decided two days before my wedding that I was making a mistake, I’d go along with it anyway. Can you imagine the shame? I can’t bear the thought of telling my parents and grandparents and all my friends and cousins and interested acquaintances that I got it wrong, again, that once again I was so sure I was right about this one and yet I ended up unhappy, again. (You know what they say about that, don’t you? Find the common denominator).
