Guess What I Did Yesterday?

I married my brother.

No, not like that, you perv.

I offciated the ceremony.

Dave and Charlene wanted something non-traditional, and they asked me to perform the wedding. I visited the Universal Life Church Monastery website, where I got ordained in about five minutes.

Charlene and Dave wrote the vows -- which, to my mother's chagrin, managed to work in the word "flatulence" -- and I offered a suggestion or two, and we were off to the races.

The wedding was held at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. The bride was beautiful, the ceremony was brief, the food was amazing, and my brother and sister-in-law are off to a great start on their life together.

And I'm pretty sure Rev. Mark has performed his first and last wedding.

Surely you have the itch to continue to marry those in need of your special services, Reverend!

Thanks again Mark. It was absolutely what we wanted.
