After living together for one month, and dating one month before that, Peter bought me a two dollar paste ring at the liquor store in our neighborhood in Andersonville. We hopped in the car right after Thanksgiving with two cases of Busch beer in the trunk and drove to Vegas. I had told my mother I was going out of town for a catering job in Wisconsin. We weren’t even sure if we were really going to tie the knot, but we did. And had one hell of road trip. I didn’t tell my folks until Christmas.
