If you could dance and clean up well to go to weddings you were in. Kind of strange, ladys not looking to get hitched but just the ride.

True, but REO Speedwagon, and Fleetwood Mac were decent. I was an older looking 16 year old when Saturday Night Fever came out. Disco did not last long but it seemed like eternity tolerating that music and scene, to be around a bunch of pretty girls. I have this fading Polaroid of me in polyester, with gold rimmed glasses. and disco shoes. I look at it for a laugh, there was some bad fads in the 70's. Olive colored appliances, and orange carpet anyone? Ford Pintos, Chevy Vegas, and AMC Pacers?

Not just disco, being able to go with the flow at weddings and move to stuff you really did not enjoy as much. So I went for those who went very easy on the makeup and even less on the perfume.

Single young man at a good sized wedding reception was like fishing in a trout hatchery. Just just make sure not do anything to jeopardize the future of the family bond or friendship. I was a best man at one and the bride's family thought I was a jackass, and that was over a couple toasts that I made. Everyone on the grooms side laughed.

You did a Charlie Harper from 2 and 1/2 men, your butt was in a sling just being the best man.

Since we had limo service from doorstep to doorstep all the groomsmen stated drinking at breakfast and had a long night the night before. Do you know how hard it is to untie a ring laying on a pillow with a ribbon in a shoelace knot with an already high blood alcohol? Even shutting one eye, I was getting close to pulling out my pocket knife. I asked that whomever was doing the ring on the pillow to leave it loose.



The maid of honor, the bride's sister and I did not get along. This was a friend who lived across the street, his sister in law would visit often when she was pissed at her live in boyfriend. Even though I was single and free I had no interest in her, sick of listening to her whine about her boyfriend. She was easy on the eye, but should have come with a warning label. She blamed me for the condition of the groomsmen and the groom. I think the revenge was the ring knot.



I could drink enough at the time to float a battleship and still be functional,
the groom was the opposite. I knew him to never have more than two drinks, so I had no idea the issues when he went beyond that, oops! I just kind of stayed overly close in case he was about to keel over. He made it to the end, he did not take another drink after we arrived at the church till the reception ended.



That marriage lasted 10 years, I am sure her family's hate for me lives on 30 years after the wedding.

Best show on TV. I quit watching when he was replaced.

Honestly, he was just an actor. Who gave a **** what he did in his private life.

They are 40th give or take a place or two in certified album sales all time across all music genres. So needless to say the world doesn't agree with you.

From what was reported on his behavior he wasn't acting on 2-1/2 men.
