The World According to Jenna
My boyfriend has already titled the book we are going to write (though the name “Jenna” may change….:)). I’m a loud, tempered, Italian- and along with that, very opinionated. The book idea came up one day when I went on several rants about the way things should be. And it was further confirmed that this needed to happen when we realized all I ever do is express my feelings on how I think people should do things (ahem…Zach….), or how I think things should be done, or how I think certain things are silly and unnecessary, and things I don’t think people do enough of. Here a couple of examples for chapters (forewarning- I give my blunt opinions.)
“Wow babe! Look at the picture of the way we set up our tables! Let’s get this one blown up and have it hang in our living room so we can remember the table cloths and how many chairs were at each table!”
“Let’s get the picture of the guest book so we can remember who was here! We could just actually look at the guest book, but let’s get the picture so we can have something to remember the moment!”
I get it. Weddings are special. I’ve never had one, and who knows if I ever will, but I’ll tell you what- I don’t want to pay a photographer for a bunch of pictures that capture the kind of linen I chose, what my buffet style selection of food looked like, and what kind of pens were used to sign the guest book.
People. Scenery. That’s what I’ll want. Please, spare me the dainty little details. I don’t need pictures to remind me of my champagne glasses.
BY YOUR 5 YEAR OLD SLIP ON OR VELCRO SHOES FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS SANE I CAN NOT SPEND HALF OF MY DAY TYING SHOES UNTYING THE KNOTS THEY TIE IN THEIR SHOES WATCHING THEM PUT THE LACES IN THEIR MOUTHS OR UP THEIR NOSES OR IN THEIR EARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You get the point.
Clearly this book would need some solid work. It will be my job to rant and Zach’s job to put it all together coherently and satirically. We’re really excited. We’re buying voice recorders. One for me to rant to when he’s not around and one for him to carry around so that when I go on one of my rants he can capture it.
This will be fun. 🙂
