Aunt Jenny's Wedding   

1     Aunt Jenny was getting married. Ginger was to be her junior bridesmaid.
2     "Is that like a flower girl?" Ginger asked.
3     "Not exactly," Aunt Jenny said. "Instead of scattering rose petals along the path, you will carry flowers and be dressed just like my bridesmaids. You will look like a princess!"
4     "She'll look like an ape in a dress," Ginger's brother, Ben, said with a snort.
5     "Oh, Ben," Aunt Jenny said sweetly, "Your mother agreed to let you be our junior usher. You'll be such a handsome boy in a tuxedo."
6     Ginger laughed as Ben's mouth dropped open.
7     Aunt Jenny turned back to her niece. "Ginger, you can choose the color of your dress: yellow or light green."
8     Ginger chose green. Ben went outside to shoot hoops, but Ginger stayed to listen to Aunt Jenny talk to her mother about the wedding.
9     Aunt Jenny and Ginger's mother, who was also Aunt Jenny's sister, talked about going on a diet. They talked about choosing the flavor of the wedding cake, and whether to have the guests throw birdseed or blow bubbles.
