Astrid & Her Amazing “I went to a wedding and lost my ring”–Adventure
In the Czech Republic, Astrid went to a wedding. The ceremony was sure lovely, but it was in Czech. Whenever the rest of the crowd stood up, Astrid stood up, whenever they sat down, Astrid remained standing. Yes, Astrid is never good at dance-routines as such. It was already good that she didn’t swing her left feet up in the air, moved her right arm above her head while no one else was doing it, or was wearing her aerobic-outfit to the wedding!!!
So the wedding continued. The old lady with the blue hair who I have mentioned earlier was part of the choir. Eventually, the “I do”-part came and the groom and bride kissed. Astrid then went outside, because she and her friend had been personally selected to be part of the rice-throwing crowd.
Now that was fun! Astrid thinks people should make that a habit at more occasions. How about when you just come home from a holiday? You don’t need to go shopping then, you just need to catch as much rice as possible to carry you through the first days, weeks, or in case of great talent, even months!!! Astrid hopes that her friends and family-members will sprinkle the colored rice when she gets back from India at the end of October, coz that is the one she likes best.
Then the Czech custom is that once the bride and groom are married, the bride gets kidnapped and is taken to the local pub to have a few drinks with her friends, the groom has to go look for her and has to pay the bill once he finds her!!! Some grooms might already run at this moment and it is a good thing the honeymoon is usually paid for in advance.
So when Astrid came home from her holiday to the Czech Republic, she took her ring off and it fell on the ground, the question is: where to? Yes, where did it go? Have you seen it by any chance? Astrid has been fearing the vacuum cleaner ever since this day and is making up excuses not to clean the house.
