I was supposed to go on a date tonight...  
...but I have an interesting excuse for canceling. I had to suddenly go take pictures of a co-worker's wedding ceremony.

Shawn and her guy decided to get married, and a small ceremony with a judge in the local park was planned. Just a few friends and family members in attendance. Well, she came by my desk at about 10 am and asked what was I doing tonight? Since I knew it was her wedding day, I wasn't about to tell her that I had a date... Turns out that now no one could show up, and she didn't even have a witness or someone to take pictures or anything. I couldn't let that happen, so I told her I would run home from work, grab the camera, and meet them up there. I wanted her to have more than I did. In Colorado all you have to do to get married is show up at the courthouse with your driver's licenses and a marriage license and fill out the paperwork. No judge, no nothing. Which is what happened when I got married. Maybe a trip to Red Robin afterwards. Shawn deserved at least a little better.

So, I'm sure that my date thinks I'm insane (who the heck has an emergency wedding to go to??), and I probably won't hear from him again. Too bad, he seemed kind of nice. But that's okay, this was more important...

Personally, I think it says something very cool about you that you'd choose to do this for your friends rather than go on a date.

Any bozo who thinks differently is probably not worth dating.

In my opinion, of course.

And that's a very nice flower arrangement in the picture, too.
Congrats to your friends. :)

Show him the picture
If he doesn't get that this is important to you, he shouldn't get any of your time.

If he does not call it is his loss, it also means he has no clue that your friends are important to you
