“I don’t understand,” John said in mild despair. “I dressed myself perfectly fine for Alexander's wedding. Suddenly it’s like I can’t find sleeves and all the buttons dodge my fingers. And I can't stop thinking about the guest list. Why did I invite almost everyone I've done group therapy with? Which includes Thomas Jefferson, when Alexander is going to be there? Why did I invite my ex? Why did neither my friend Martha nor my sister Martha nor Alexander's foster mother Martha nor acerbic teenager Martha Jefferson Jr., all involved in this process, not stop me? The Marthas have failed me.”
