At the last minute I remembered the tie. How could I almost have forgotten?
I remembered the official forms.
I remembered to remind the soon-to-be-newlyweds to bring the marriage license.
I remembered the papers containing the rubrics of the ceremony.
I remembered the poem I wrote.
I remembered the new blue coat and the white shirt.
I remembered to take the directions to the Panama Hotel.
I remembered to bring buckets to put the flowers in.
I got the flowers at the flower market, with Lisa and Eli’s help.
I remembered the phone charger.
I remembered shampoo, conditioner, and (just in case) my swim suit and goggles.
I remembered not to drink too much wine at the rehearsal dinner.
Dressing for the service it hit me,
I forgot my pants.
