...reminded me of one time when I was janitor for our church...and there was a wedding...the sound people were outatown and the couple assured me that they thought I could handle the simple task...play a song from that Canadian lady for him from her....then play a Tracy Byrd song for her from him....welllllllllllllllllll, I had the cd thingy loaded with two discs....I had the track number to play for each stickied up there....I was all ready...the piano lady was at the piano (of course) at the front of the church, and I was at a raised sound booth at the back...the speakers faced front and I couldn't hear much....but when the piano song ended, and the piano lady nodded to me, I punched in the number of the girl's song to her love....Celene Dion(does that sound right-the Titanic love song....and this thing almost ended up like the Titanic)....and everyone cried while the loveyouforeverdearestonesong played....then the song ended, and a short piano interlude...and the piano lady nodded again....and I punched in the number for the guy's song to his gal....heard the music start, and the words begin...and thought I'd done a great job....till the piano lady started shaking her head violently and looked like she'd swallowed a dirty sock...I punched stop...folks were looking back at me and laughing, and all I could do was punch it in again and hit start....and the song started, everyone cried again, and they were wedded....married....hitched.....well after the doins'...guess who stayed behind to clean up...and I cranked up the sound, listened to the whole Tracy Byrd CD, and understood what the piano lady was choking on......somehow, I'd put in the wrong number, and, instead of tender love, I'd played a scorching confession...at least 4 lines of it:

Stress? Most the photographers I've seen are seeing double by the time the reception starts.
