There's a song, from Jonathan Larson's "tick...tick...BOOM," entitled "Come to Your Senses." The singer urges: "Let the music commence from inside; not only one sense, but use all five. Come to your senses." So I guess that's what I'm doing. Using all 5, figuring it out, every day.
Wedding Brawl of the Day: Multiple people — including the groom’s mother! — were arrested this past weekend in a wedding brawl that started when the groom’s brothers were cut off at the bar. The Boston Herald‘s Jessica Heslam recounts the he said, she-said mayhem:
This service slight somehow incensed [groom Anthony] Delorio-Weiner, 25, who punched a wall and began tearing apart the coatroom after someone from the bride’s side of the family told him to calm down.
When the bride’s brother approached Delorio-Weiner, the groom punched him and the pair were soon tussling on the floor, police say.
[Mother of the groom] Darlene [Delorio]‘s version of the story is a bit different. It was all about disrespect, she said. According to her, the whole kerfuffle began when the bride’s mother began yelling at Darlene’s 70-year-old mother and waving her finger in her face.
Darlene insists she was only defending her mom and her family’s good name. How could that be assault? As the fighting escalated, Darlene claims she went to leave but was insulted by her ex-boyfriend’s galpal, who told her she was no lady.
The couple are (hopefully) patching things up on their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic. “They’re in love,” Delorio said. “They’re doing everything in their power to make it work.”
