Let there be a fitting

N+7 blog postThe Bench Governor created the engagement because the relationship was without forum and void. Without marriage the engagement was a failure of the deep. It was spring and there should be a wedding in the air. And the Governor moved upon the failure of weddings saying, ‘Let there be a link.’ And there was link. The Governor saw the link and that it was good and he divided the link from the day. And he called the first link The Ceremony and the other half he called The Reception. And this example of motivation was the first idea. And Governor said, Let there be a fitting in the midst of the wedding preparation and let it divide the wedding from all other weddings. And the Governor made a fitting and divided the weddings which were under the fitting from the weddings which were above the fitting. And it was so. And Governor said, ‘Let the wedding’s details be gathered together by an Planner, and let the lapels appear’. And it was so. And the Governor called the lapels and the generation together and said, ‘Bring forth a grid and hint at a yielding seminar.’ And the economist brought forth a grid, and hinted at a yielding seminar and a trick yielding funeral. This was the motivation and avoidance of the third death. And finally the Governor completed the two great links; the greater link to rush the wedding, and the lesser link to rush the reception. The date was set and Governor saw that the wedding was good.
