Five years ago, my mom’s seventh grade American History class decided it would be a great idea if she and the General got together.
They wrote love letters on the chalkboard. They left tea-stained letters on her desk.
Soon enough, Joan and George were engaged.
Of course, George had to break off the engagement at one point, because what great romance doesn’t have its moment of trepidation?
Then George realized he’d been a fool, and asked her to take him back. She accepted.
The class threw them a wedding, complete with cake.
Five years ago today, my mom’s seventh graders got to act out their shipping fanfiction and their OTP wed before their eyes.
For anyone who had crappy history teachers and mothers, you can borrow mine anytime.
Please raise your glass with me as we toast the happy couple!
(I may or may not have sent flowers to school and signed it from George)
awwww! This is the best!
