One must always plan for something to go wrong on their wedding day. Possibly bad weather or cranky relatives. Maybe a missed delivery, or the wrong corsage for Aunt Betsy.
I would have been happy, no, overjoyed, to have something fixable on my important day.
The worst part was, I didn't even see it coming.
So innocent he sat upon the chair, curled up and purring. I hung my wedding dress on the door near him. It was exquisite!
A small piece of the train had slipped out from the bag. I did not see it, but he had.
Catzilla surveyed it. He made sure I was in the shower before he proceeded with his heinous crime. He ate my dress! My beautiful wedding gown!
I buried him outside. The tombstone read:
Here lies my pet
a purchase I regret,
No cat heaven for him,
in committing the unpardonable sin.
