column: Wedding Budget Proves a Royal Pain



            I’ve been thinking a lot of about royalty and weddings lately.

            Don’t know why.

            Just kidding, of course I know: It’s because I’m engaged, and we’re basing our wedding budget on the one everyone’s most familiar with: that of Prince one-of-those-brothers and Kate something or other.

            Rather than reinventing the wheel, we’ll copy the royal wedding and scale it down a bit. For instance, their wedding is budgeted at $34 million, making it one of the costliest celebrations of any kind in history.

            We simply removed the zeroes; our wedding budget is $34. Have another Cheeto and a cut of tap water, everyone!
