Meanwhile, one of the components of the reception was to surprise Anna with a ginormous container of cotton candy. (It is her childhood favorite, which is what this candy idea seemed to be about, and we were tickled to have thought of it.)
The Naperville candy store makes it fresh daily in the summer, so I made a special trip a day before the wedding to grab a huge bucket of the stuff.
And later, when we asked Anna how she had liked her special treat, she didn't know what we were talking about.
"You know, the cotton candy we left on your chair at the reception!"
"There was cotton candy?" she replied in disbelief.
It seemed someone had absconded with her special treat.
My personal view was to begin interrogation-by-email, but was vetoed by my husband.
Fast forward to yesterday, exactly 6 months post-wedding.
In the study, on top of the tallish bookcase (that Charlie looks at every day) was a white plastic bag. With the cotton candy still in it.
I don't know which is scarier, thinking we had actually brought it to the reception or the science experiment cotton candy eventually became.
Sorry, Anna. We owe you your personal bucket of floss. June 1st. Downtown Naperville.
