This week’s comment diversion is more of a request, a favor from reader, Jessika, who is asking for a little help from our brilliant readers. “So,” she writes, “I’m asking — no, begging — for a favor. I’m getting married in September, and I’m looking for a quotation to include in the invitation that isn’t sappy/cheesy and doesn’t pander to the lowest common denominator — something real and edgy but romantic. Could you pose my request to the Pajibans as a comment diversion?”

Gladly, Jessika.

So what about it, folks? And while we want to focus on Jessika’s request, let’s also broaden the scope of the diversion to overall favorite quotes.

As for me, Jessika: Here’s a quote — specific to wedding invitations — that you probably shouldn’t use: Back in my very early 20s, I stepped into a brief, though eventful, marriage of convenience — a matrimonial sham of sorts. And, because my sense of humor was a little more off-kilter a decade ago, I included a favorite Elvis Costello quote in our homemade wedding invitations, a quote that would epitomize that entire, fleeting relationship: “It was a fine idea at the time / Now It’s a Brilliant Mistake.” Indeed.

So, I turn it over to you good folks: Give her your best.

And congrats, Jessika, on your impending nuptials.
