Few moments in life are as revealing as the one where you find your dinner table at a wedding reception. So many things are suddenly brought into focus: whether your self-image is accurate or not, where you stand in the hierarchy of your friendships, and, most importantly, whether the bride and groom are really and truly worth the planet ticket and hotel room costs you just forked over. Everyone has been to a wedding where they are the odd person out and found themselves speaking to the childhood babysitter or the Semester at Sea acquaintance while starring longingly at the front of the dining room. It happens to everyone. It will happen to you.
