"Love is like Legos"
by Degeezus, Berkeley, CA
Now, a lot of you that know me are asking yourselves,"Why would Andrea get this wedding hating Heffer to be her Bridesmaid?" I asked her the same thing. But after 2 months of helping prepare for this wedding, I finally realized why they asked me and it's because they hate me with a passion.
Really, I love these two. I have had the pleasure of knowing them both for over 9 years. When I first met Andrea she was 19 years old, showing pictures of herself chained to a fire hydrant, protesting a fur company that was probably going to use baby seals for their new line of tampons, or something like that. I didn't know what was going on. I was just a young girl from Spain? People doing things TO get arrested?! My mind was blown.
Then, on the other end of the spectrum, there was Nate. How could I have known, that when Andrea turned around to see who she needed to slap for saying an extremely sexist comment about women's sports, that Nate would be standing there and in one rare and ironic moment, one hairy arm pitted, vegan, feminist would fall in love with what many women would consider a neanderthal. Now, 57 cans of shaving cream and 197 Women Lib "discussions" late , we have a wedding.
I don't know much about Weddings and I'm not really good with sentimental stuff. So when Nate was thinking about asking Andrea to marry him he told me he wanted to be richer, and have a home for her and just wanted to be able to take care of her and he wanted to have it "All together". I told him,"that's like buying a Lego set and all the peices have been put together, that's no fun."
I know you two will build your life together, build on the love you have for each other and build a family together and when you look back and see a Star Wars Lego Millenium Falcon, you will be amazed at all the things you have accomplished together.
I love you both.
