So, I'm thinking about bringing a date for my cousin's wedding in July.
I had plans to bring my lifelong (since 1993) friend, a woman aged 23. We went to elementary and high school together, did stuff, and we even dated briefly from October 2009 to January 2010. (we broke up for reasons I do not care to discuss, none of which were ABDL-related) I always thought she was cute and adorable, and she's sweet to me. I love her. My mother and I regard her as a part of the family. She also happens to be a heavier-set girl, a trait which I tend to favor in women. Nevertheless, she never failed to look cute and charming, and she dressed attractively.
She has always been a bit of an outsider, not really yielding much to the whims of others. I like that in a woman.
Lately, though, I've been starting to see a seamy side of her. She's been cutting her hair in ludicrous hairstyles, drinking heavily and abusing drugs, hanging out with dysfunctional and/or maladjusted people (though occasionally I successfully get her to share my convictions). She has been on a tattoo and piercing frenzy, not that it's a bad thing, but consider that one of the tattoos on her arm is a six-shooter pistol with 'FAT BITCH' on the barrel. In her words:
"It's my weapon of choice, it has the inscription 'FAT BITCH' in it which are words I've had thrown at me for years and have always had a negative connotation. Now I'm making those words into a powerful weapon to fight with."
I can just imagine my 88-year-old, socially conservative grandmother checking out her ink and seeing 'FAT BITCH' on a barrel of a gun...how embarrassing!
The wedding reception calls for formal attire and is a rather small gathering at a 19th century Victorian-style bed and breakfast. I would really like to bring her, because I've spoken highly of her to my family. Unfortunately, given the outrageously unflattering hairdo and offensive ink, I might not. It kills me because I hate to act so shallow and she is my best friend. My mother has complicated things by mentioning to her that I had considered bringing her, and now I feel obliged. I am currently considering a multitude of options, including bringing someone else. It fair to say that it's a moral predicament of sorts.
