Elderly Couple Married At Pharmacy on Valentine's Day
"Valentine's Day in Madison, Miss., included the wedding of a bride and groom, ages 87 and 79, at the cash register of a supermarket pharmacy.
Osler Moore and Billie Small, who intended to tie the knot Sunday in a Heflin, Miss., church, decided to move the ceremony up when the romantic in Moore suggested, 'It's Valentine's Day. Why not get married?'"
I've heard of young couples getting married in unconventional places like a Starbucks restaurant or an Internet cafe. It makes perfect sense that an elderly couple would get married in a seemingly strange place like a pharmacy. Old folks have so many maladies and illnesses, and they spend a lot of time at pharmacies.
I wouldn't be surprised if senior citizens think of a pharmacy as a hook-up place, a singles bar for the geriatric set.
Eddie: My, your lovely blue hair really makes your dreamy blue eyes stand out.
Bessie: Why, thank you my dear. Are those blue pills you are clutching Viagra?
Eddie: You make me blush, but yes they are.
Bessie: Why you old goat. Come over to my place for milk and cookies, and let's see how well those pills work.
Osler Moore and Billie Small moved up their wedding date because Valentine's Day was right around the corner, and the Grim Reaper wasn't too far behind.
Congrats to Osler and Billie, let's hope they enjoy many year or at least many months, of wedding bliss.
