Congratulations

Wonderful Wife: “Don’t just write congratulations on the wedding card.”

My Oldest, age 16: “Why not?”

WW: “You only wish the groom congratulations because he got a beautiful bride. You tell the bride best wishes.”

Me: “You should always tell the groom ‘Nice Going, Dude’ and tell the bride ‘Good Luck Because You’re Going to Need It, Sister’.”

Oldest: “What?”

WW: “Here’s a good rule: Never take advice from your father.”

Oldest: “That sounds about right.”

Me: “Yeah, that’s actually solid advice.”
