My sister-in-law Mikyn got engaged recently to her boyfriend Doc (like Holliday), and because I'm the glue that holds her emotional life together, I thought this would be a great time to dedicate a post to her. *ahem* Where do I start? Mikyn was the quintessential youngest child. She had a horse, cute clothes, a canopy bed, a car.
|Did I mention cute clothes because DAWG look at that hat!|
I think I can completely sum up Mikyn's charmed childhood by telling you that she owned 330 Beanie Babies. To put that into perspective, I myself, coming from a middle-upper class family, had seven Beanie Babies. SEVEN. And if given the chance, I probably would have traded the family car, our house, and/or my little sister for more of them, especially that tie-dyed bear because HOW DID THEY TIE DYE HIM LIKE THAT? But I don't really blame Mikyn for having everything a girl could ever want, for it is the rule of all youngest children: they get the coolest stuff, but they also get stuck at home all alone with their parents for a few years. And parents are whack, right kids? *put hat on backwards, throws gang sign* Now who wants to go run amok and smoke some pot joints?
Mikyn just graduated from BYU with a degree in something that sounds super lame, I think it has to do with soil. Or pants? Either way, it took four years and cost thousands of dollars, those are the main things to remember about college. And I assume one of her professors must have taught that photobombing precious family moments was an essential life skill, because this has become a priority for her.
All I know is that BYU didn't teach her to appreciate her Julia's-in-law, because she still doesn't like it when I give her an atomic wedgie then hold her in a bear hug while shouting "SISTERSSSSS!" And that hurts me.
Another thing about Mikyn--WOW this is getting boring, so we'll get to the question on everyone's minds: How did she find someone to put a ring on it? It's a valid question to which there is no clear answer. Doc is tall, handsome, and friendly; all characteristics that would put him out of Mikyn's league. Yet...somehow...I guess I just don't know. This is another mystery to throw onto the pile along with who shot JR and how do they get animals to move their mouths like they're talking in all of the movies?
