"Valentine`s Day in Madison, Miss., included the wedding of a bride and groom, ages 87 and 79, at the cash register of a supermarket pharmacy.
Osler Moore and Billie Small, who intended to tie the knot Sunday in a Heflin, Miss., church, decided to move the ceremony up when the romantic in Moore suggested, `It`s Valentine`s Day. Why not get married?`"
I`ve heard of young couples getting married in unconventional places like a Starbucks restaurant or an Internet café. It makes perfect sense that an elderly couple would get married in a seemingly strange place like a pharmacy. Old folks have so many maladies and illnesses, and they spend a lot of time at pharmacies.
I wouldn`t be surprised if senior citizens think of a pharmacy as a hook-up place, a singles bar for the geriatric set:
Eddie: Fancy meeting you here at the Walmart pharmacy! My, your lovely blue hair really makes your dreamy blue eyes stand out.
Bessie: Why, thank you my dear. Are those blue pills you are clutching Viagra?
Eddie: You make me blush, but yes they are.
Bessie: You old alcoholic, your face is always red and blotchy. Come over to my place for milk and cookies, and let`s see how well those pills work.
Osler Moore and Billie Small moved up their wedding date because Valentine`s Day was right around the corner, and the Grim Reaper wasn`t too far behind.
Congrats to Osler and Billie, let`s hope they enjoy many years or at least many months, of wedding bliss.
