My aunt and I have never really had any bad blood or any real reason to not get along. Honestly, I only see her and my Uncle once a year (Christmas Eve) and that’s about the extent of the relationship, if you will. She’s not a bad person, I just find her a bit bizarre and haphazard.
On my wedding day, the DJ knew of certain songs I did not want played (Electric Slide, Booty Call, or any of those group dances – not a fan) and he also was great about alerting me or getting my attention if a request was made to make sure it was something I wanted played. Somehow something got slipped by me and shortly after the Father / Daughter and Mother / Son dance, my mother and myself were called out to the dance floor.
I was extremely confused and unsure of what was going on.
All of a sudden, “The Wind Beneath My Wings” started playing and I was supposed to dance with my mom.
What was going on? I looked utterly confused and after about a minute, I gave the DJ the “cut it” sign, which he did and started playing something else on my playlist.
Believe me, I love my mother…but she looked a bit lost too.
Turns out, my Aunt had requested this. Not sure if she was trying to upset me or she truly thought she was doing something nice.
