“Congratulations and best wishes to the bridge and groom,” the best man toasted at the wedding. ”May you have a long and happy marriage!”
As was their custom, the best man smashed his champagne glass in the stone fireplace. One by one, the wedding guests made a wish for the happy couple and then smashed their glasses. The father of the groom shouted, ”May you have many children,” and followed suit.
After everyone left, the best man saw the champagne glass that was left.
”Oh no,” he said. “They will have 25 years of bad luck.”
For Friday Fictioneers. Thanks, Rochelle!
