Trick or treat
What you’re looking at right here is the candy bar at my sister’s wedding, my major contribution being the hauling of classic Pinoy candies Kendi Mint, Orange Swits, Flat Tops, and Butterball all the way to Texas, from Manila. Despite being maid of honor, I didn’t get to do much maid-of-honorly things at all, because I was taking care of a fussy jetlagged baby the whole time.
What is a maid of honor usually expected to do? Definitely throw the bride a party, take over logistics so she can enjoy her day in peace, and assist her as she negotiates stairs and steps on the stilts she chose to wear. Did I do any of that? Nope!
It just occurred to me that Kimmy was a better maid of honor than I was. Eep! At least I brought candy!
