One of the Missus' good friends is getting married tomorrow and I have to go to the rehearsal dinner straight from work this evening. Apart from the bride herself, I really won't know anybody there. And as I'm sure she and the Missus will spend all evening gabbing about wedding things, in which I have somewhere between little and no real interest, my own role as Third Wheel at this shindig is virtually assured.

I wonder if anybody would mind if I brought a book along and discretely read it under the table.

(The wedding itself and the reception will be a different matter, fortunately, as the LMC and his clan will be in town for the festivities.)

Or you could just drink too much and make the missus drive you home early so you and she can discuss your behavior later. Of course, that might work better for family functions.
