She grabbed the mike and wrapped her mouth around the end of it (was his name Mike, she could not remember?). She blabbed the usual sophomoric tittle-tattle about Terry being the school bike and then to the utter shock of everyone, especially the poor groom (a Baptist Pastor), she uttered the words that the bride had never hoped to hear again.
