Lindsay Wedding Story

I went to a friend’s wedding in January of this year. I was dressed in a sexy number, feeling rather glam, as one does when they go to weddings. The wedding was on a beautiful farm in the countryside, with lots of dogs and animals.

All was going well, until just after we ate. The party was just kicking off, as it does when everyone has eaten and the speeches are over. I was ready to get my dancing shoes on! But before I stepped onto the dance floor, a huge, standard Poodle passed me by. I love them to bits. I obviously had to go give it a snuggle and a kiss.

Satisfied, I went off to dance. But five minutes later, my head started to itch so badly. I didn't think too much of it, but then it went down my back and my arms. It was an uncontrollable itch. So I went to find my husband. Before the words came out my mouth, I could see by the reaction on his face that there was definitely something wrong with me. He looked at me as if I was an ogre. Not 30 seconds later, I had just about everyone at the wedding staring at my face, thanks to my husband.

Basically I had an allergic reaction and my face was swollen and red. But the funny part was it was only red with two stripes from my mouth on either side. Everyone said I looked like a clown. Gee thanks!

My husband suggested we go home. I said no way. I was at a wedding to celebrate my friend’s marriage and just because I looked weird (I think my husband was embarrassed for me), I was not going to let that stop me. He kept telling me to go to the bathroom and look in the mirror. I refused, knowing that if I saw how I truly looked, I probably would leave. The owners of the establishment gave me some antihistamine and so with a swollen and red face, we partied with our friends!

I allowed them to take a picture of me, so I could at least see what I did look like the next day. The picture apparently does no justice to how bad it really was.
