When Bert Lord (left) was eating Italian food at Trattoria Lisina during the 2009 Plaid Shorts event at Wizard Academy, he looked up at a startlingly pretty waitress and – wanting to impress her – said, “You have eyes just like my dog.”
Everyone at the table laughed, of course.
Bert, flustered and confused, said,
“But my dog has beautiful eyes!”
Flash forward 2 years: Bert falls in love with Battie (right,)
and asks her to marry him. She miraculously says Yes.
They get married on a Saturday, hop on a plane and
fly WHERE for their honeymoon?
You guessed it.
Bert and Battie were part of the Marshmallow Surprise class
at Wizard Academy 2 days later.
You’ll meet Bert and Battie at the Gala Grand Opening of the Tower
on April 23 (assuming we get our occupancy permit on time.)
Battie has agreed to dress up like a pirate with Bert
and help him host the nautical quarterdeck.
Gosh, she must really love this guy.
