My Sister's Big Fat Greek Wedding
By Brenda B. Covert

1     Dear Jayna,
2     What a droll way you have of phrasing your questions! In your last letter you asked what a weekend in a foreign country is like. I can't answer that, because I've never been to a foreign country! Unless I misunderstood your intention, you really meant to ask what we do in Greece. I will tell you, if in return you share with me the typical weekend in America!
3     In the interest of expediency, I'll describe one specific day. That would be the day that my sister Zoe had what you Americans apparently call a "big fat Greek wedding." She got married last Sunday, and we had a great time of revelry! To save time, I'll only share the facts that are relevant to the wedding.
