Oops: “When my husband and I were standing with our parents in the receiving line at our wedding reception, we were all busy introducing ourselves to everyone,” wrote Pat Roberts. “When it came my Dad’s turn to introduce his new wife to distant relatives, he introduced her as ‘My wife Dorothy Ann.’ The only problem was that her name was Ruth, and my mother Dorothy Ann was standing with her new husband a few yards down in the receiving line.”
