Wedding Wednesday: Intermezzo vs. Intermezzo

When planing a wedding, you learn a lot of new words. One of those words is intermezzo.

Intermezzo (n): Used throughout Europe as a way to cleanse the palate in between courses, intermezzos are usually small, light and refreshing. Sorbet is commonly used.

Intermezzo is seriously a word I had never heard (though I think there was a reference to it in The Princess Diaries?) but it is something you become mighty concerned with once you start visiting wedding venues. I don't even think I want an intermezzo but FEAR NOT if you are going to be a guest at our wedding, you will have lemon sorbet between your macaroni and main course (or is it salad and macaroni?). If you are extra nice to me, you can even have mine because I think I will definitely spill it on my dress...the bride's intermezzo must be good luck, right? Like her bouquet?

You can imagine my surprise then, when I was watching television over the weekend and saw a commercial for Intermezzo, a prescription sleep aid for people of have middle of the night insomnia.*

The only image I could find via Google of an Intermezzo pill is of a nondescript white pill. To me, this does not eliminate the possibility that a bottle of Intermezzo (the sleep aid) are pill size lemon sorbets. Can anyone give me concrete evidence that this is not the truth? If not, I would like to request that my Intermezzo (the sleep aid) be of the mint chocolate chip variety and not the lemon sorbet variety. In fact, wedding venue I would like our intermezzo (dinner course) to also be mint chocolate chip. Sorry friends, I will actually be eating my intermezzo, so no extras or good luck for you.

*This post is in no way sponsored by Intermezzo (but if you want to throw some dollars my way, Intermezzo, I won't say no). Also, I'm sorry if this post is in any way offensive to people who have insomnia.
