The first wedding on the moon


Hi Hillary,

Re “Taking Out Insurance” a couple of weeks ago.  This is a good story and quite entertaining if it wasn’t so real for many foreigners. I myself was entertaining the idea to burn down or bulldoze my house (her house) down.  But I never got the timing right and anyway I have no insurance, so I let her be.  But what amazes me about my former fiancée Darling, that after all her cheating she comes happily back to me, announcing that I am her real King and wants to get married right away.  But with the marriage she wants a bigger house, 10 rai, a pick up truck, gold and a healthy bank balance.  Of course I agreed with her reasonable requests and told her we getting married on the moon.


Dear Vern,

It is all a bit of a lottery, isn’t it.  Now may not be the time to buy a ticket, Petal.  However, you do sound a bit like the chicken stuffed for Sunday roast.  You have not been fully plucked yet.  I look forward to your Moon in June wedding, please send me an invitation and the flight ticket.
