OK, so during my years living at the Parkmerced apartment complex, I had four roommates: Dan, Pete, my brother Max and Jon. That's five people total (including me).
What do all five of these people have in common? They're all getting married!
In the 12 months between September 2004 and September 2005, all five will have gotten married. Max got married last September (and will again in May). Jon got married last October. And Dan, Pete and I will all be getting married this year (though not to each other).
What the HELL is going on here??
