The bride and groom hesitated. A room full of reception guests held their breath waiting for the answer.
Awkward silence dragged on.
“Uh, we don’t know?” The bride offered, finally.
Mercifully the MC seemed to sense the faux pas and appeared set to quickly move on to the next question. The relief in the room was palpable until he got the next question completely out.
“So who snores the most?”
Another awkward silence. The bride and groom turned to look at each other in disbelief.
Granted, it was a second wedding but there were four (yes FOUR) pastors present at the reception plus two sets of parents in their 70’s and 80’s, deeply religious people. Three fourths of the room sat frowning disapprovingly, their arms crossed. The rest leaned forward grinning in amusement, not wanting to miss a single word.
Always know your audience….
