Races or girlfriend?

So I was planning on going to the AMA race at Road America since last June when I wasn't able to go. It's only about 3 and half hours from my home... just found out yesterday that I HAVE to go to my girlfriend's cousin's wedding.....but....I'm pretty sure I'm going to the race.... this is not going to go over well!

Is anyone going to this race?

You've had these plans since last June and it's only her cousin FFS. If she doesn't understand this, I wouldn't plan on keepng her in your life long term anyway.




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

I was also planning on going to them, until my son decided to get married on the 2nd of June.I suggested they have the reception there so I could still watch the races. Yeah, that went over like a lead balloon. So now I'm planning on going to the Championship Cup Series July 6-8. Not the same as the superbikes...But at least their still bikes.

somebodys signature has the answer to your problems it says something like "its easier to beg for forgiveness then ask for permission." here is a couple suggestions on getting out of the wedding.
1.start a fight the night before.
2.pretend you have to work.
3.you forgot you had to do some charity work for needy children that day.
4.go to the race then when she bitches at you fake like you pass out or have a heart attack or something like that, that will destract her for a while.
5.use the "ohh that was this weekend" line
6.tell her you want to test the, absents makes the heart grow fonder theory.
7.tell her the "story" of the last wedding you attended."man I didn't even remember puking on the bride, I was sooo wasted."
8.tell her its good luck for the wedding if the cousins boyfriend doesn't go.
9.use the "if you loved me you would understand" line.
10.use any or all the #1-9 excuses in a combo how could that possibly fail.

remember if you make it up its a lie, but if you read it it has to be true right? (applies to rule #6,8,9)

The question in my mind is: how serious is the relationship with the girlfriend? If she's just a convenient place to park your meat while you look for something better then the choice is obvious. If you're planning marriage with her then it's not as easy. I still agree with some of the above comments though, in that prior plans trump something like this because it is her cousin. It's not like it's someone in her immediate family.

My vote: off to the races!

That would be me!


If you had these plans since last June, go to the races. You are NOT married, you dont HAVE to do anything. Yes, she will remove your testicles, but it will be worth it.
