I'll try to assuage your fears as best I can
A number of people have asked for pictures. And details.
Who is this guy I've agreed to spend the rest of my natural born life with?
So here you go. This is a picture Nick made of our wedding as soon as we got engaged.
Now, I know you might be worried about us for a myriad of reasons, so let me just list any fears I can think of that you might have. And then try to assuage them, to the best of my ability.
If you have any other questions or frets, I'm happy to answer them.
You might start by wondering why I'm marrying someone with a head eight times the size of mine? And, perhaps more worrisome, way too big for his own body?
The answer there is that size doesn't matter, and I love him, no matter how oddly proportioned he might be. Sickness and health, and all that.
You might also be concerned because I've clearly got some weird and jagged chin/neck thing going on. Plus my face doesn't match the rest of my body. What, you might be wondering, is wrong with Lisa's face? Chin? Neck?
All I can say is, yes, that's true. I'm not always so great with the makeup. And in our wedding photo, I'm just plain having a bad chin day. We all have them. But my hair looks pretty good, doesn't it?
And finally, you might be scared that I am marrying someone who looks like he escaped from an insane asylum.
To that, my best explanation is as follows. Yes, he is a little crazy, but not flat-out batshit insane.
He just looks like that because, well, sometimes he likes to.
You see, he's taller than a lot of people, and so, at places like, oh, New Year's Eve parties, he finds great amusement in inserting himself in other people's photos. You'll look at a number of pictures from that night and see a bunch of normal, smiling, festive people. And then an alarming, crazed-looking head floating above the crowd.
Some people might be like, wtf?
And I am all, um, yeah, I know. He so clearly fits right in with my people.
