Importantly to us, Gene is also freakin' hilarious. I can't wait to see what our crowd thinks of him. Today while Gene and I were chatting about some ceremony stuff, he summed up in one brief exchange why we've asked him to do this for us:
Gene: Oh my Gawwwwwwwd! The invitations!!!
Me: So fun, huh?
Gene: I swear to you, I couldn't even open the thing. I was just in awe of it and knew that what was inside was going to break my ass it'd be so powerful, so I just kind of carried it around with me unopened for a week.
Maggie: Wait, seriously? You couldn't open it?
Gene: No! It was going to break my ass! I couldn't do it! Had to just sit with it a while.
Maggie: You are hilarious. Should this story make it into your ceremony intro somehow?
Gene: Ha ha... noted.
Maggie: Only if you repeat the phrase "break my ass," of course.
