Hopefully, time has mellowed the experience
and you can look back and laugh.
But misery loves company...so submit your
to us and we'll use some of them in a sTN cover story!
Nothing mean-spirited, just unfortunate and comical mishaps that
tainted an otherwise perfect simchah whether it be a wedding,
bar/bat mitzvah, anniversary, birthday, dinner party or family gathering.
If you have any "you've got to see it to believe it" photos
documenting the blooper, send them along...unless, of course,
you want to protect the anonymity of the innocent.
