First Marriage

My first husband was a black Great Dane named Alex. The ceremony took place on the porch of my grandmother’s house, with my sister wearing a gypsy skirt and pretending to be a mother appalled by her daughter’s choice to marry a dog. I wore my aunt’s communion dress; he went nude. Once everything was official and my “mother” had gotten over the shock, instead of carrying me over the threshold, Alex let me ride on his back across the yard.
