haggis | Crazy For Trying

At dinner last night the subject of haggis came up in reference to Robbie Burns night. As the conversation flowed the question was posed: has anyone come close to haggis.

and BAM:

It’s 1994 or 1995 or 1996. The details are fuzzy. I was at a wedding in Sudbury, Ont. — as the date of one of the groomsmen.

It was winter, I think. I don’t remember the ceremony (I admit, I may not have even attended it), only parts of the reception. It was held in a community hall — dim lighting. I just remember a lot of grey colours.

The groom had Scottish heritage, played a bagpipe. My date was a snare drummer in the pipe band they all played in.

There were shots of Glenfiddich and there was haggis.

I partook of neither.

The groom and the bride had been in a long-term relationship and for whatever reason decided to get married.

After the wedding my date and I headed back to Toronto and I continued on back to London, Ont. to school.

A month later the bride had run off.

The groom committed suicide.

True story.

It haunts me to this day.

    I hadn’t heard that story before – definitely haunting.

    Good thing you don’t remember too many of the details — best to forget!
    But, I am glad you are back with your blog!
