I thought long and hard about it. I dug deep... and then I clicked the "Continue with Ordination" button. I was warned that I was about to change my life and that I would be set apart from my peers, but I got my free online Universal Ministries ordination anyway. While I can't rule out a life of religious service (heck, I lived in West L.A. and I had put that just above "sex change" on the scale of improbability), I only became ordained to save my sister some cash.
Courtney is getting married in March and, after much discussion (arm-twisting and heavy pressure from Mom), has agreed to have a small wedding. I haven't been asked to preside over the ceremony, but if I am asked, I'll be ready.
