Re: [ticket2write] Help! (Wings)
I'd rather like to see you in a tux, dear. Do fetch it out of the closet and pose for photos. Just one for your favorite gals her at T2W.

Members with a strong sense of propriety, I solicit your advice on writing a very special letter of refusal to attend a society wedding.
You will no doubt have heard about the forthcoming wedding of Prince William and his fiancée Katherine Middleton.
Invites comes from Crown equerry Simon Robinson. An excellent fellow and a decent chap who was/is a great favourite of H.M. the Queen and a good pal if you needed someone to pull a few strings where it mattered.
Problem is Simon has been accused of an extra-marital affair, which he vehemently denies, but after the wedding he is to be replaced by Colonel Toby Browne. Don't know the chap as well as I do Simon but he must have ticked all the right boxes.
Now I don't want to let Wills down or Katy who is my type of girl, even if she has made it clear she doesn't want Wills mixing with my crowd after their marriage.
Let me be perfectly honest here: I don't want to go and yet I hate to leave Wills, a fellow aviator, in the lurch.
Haven't worn my tux for so long it reeks of mothballs and my best shoes would benefit from a touch of polish.
So my good friends, I have this great dilemma: How can I possibly refuse in an acceptable way without risking the fear of ostracism from future contact with our Royal Family to whom I voluntarily swore allegiance when I enlisted for military service.
I'm hoping there will be a good turnout and I won't be missed but you can bet your bottom dollar the press won't let it go without comment if they get wind of my absence, so please be careful with your advice and don't copy to anyone outside t2w.
Ps. Would you think it in bad taste if, after a decent period, I stuck the invite on e-bay?

Looking forward to seeing it on Amazon.
Perhaps when that is achieved and you have a little time to spare,
you might encourage other members by listing your trials and tribulations for success.
Best of luck
