Your dream wedding:
when do i get to the cool stuff in this blogging challenge like “pitch a neat idea for a website”? incidentally my answer would be www.awkwardgait.com. this site would feature uploaded vids of people walking awkwardly. like the dude waddling ferociously to keep up his pants (a belt, a length of rope or suspenders would work wonders) and the woman wearing 6 inch heels WITH a pointy toe whose feet are screaming expletives at her with every step. take em’ off girl! i know they hurt! feet were made to spread out and grab the earth! those geniuses over at Birkenstock have the right idea! let them toes spread! lol!!!!
ok. i digress. suffice it to say that this topic kinda stumped me. i never was the kinda little girl who dreamed about wedding planning and wedding dresses. i did dream about having a husband and kids though. and i dreamed about having a quaint little bungalow of a house with over stuffed chairs and lamps that cast a warm glow 🙂 lemme digress again before i burst into this song (minus the bit about ‘dating a semi sadist’):
so dream wedding…hmm…my own wedding was quite simple. we had the essentials, me, him, the presiding clergyman (Imam), some well wishers and food afterwards. i did love my dress but it wasn’t selected after days, months or years of pouring over bridal magazines. i went to an Indian clothing boutique and in a matter of maybe 20 minutes I selected a beautiful silver 2 piece ensemble with a matching dupatta (an enormous, stiff, heavy, what-am-i-supposed-to-do-with-this? shawl).
the pc thing to do would be to say that my own wedding was my idea of my dream wedding. that statement’d be about 3/4 true. i’d keep the getting-down-to-brass-tacks elements of my wedding but i’d add something new. following the nuptials there’s there’d be a quiz show portion. it’d be after because the idea is not to encourage bride and/or groom to back out. its purpose would center on starting off the rest of your lives together with a healthy dose-o-reality. it’d have questions like (bride to groom):
- on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being ‘well i never!’ and 5 being ‘sometimes a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do’, how likely are you to leave your toenail clippings strewn about willy nilly and pell mell?
- i go to sleep with the tv on and if you ‘sneak’ and turn it off i’ll instantly awaken. is that a problem for you?
- have you ever heard of a book called Fascinating Womanhood? do you understand that if you ever quote from it i’ll likely go check that book out at my local library (making sure its a hardback edition), and beat you about the head and shoulders with it?
now that that’s said and done. lets commence with the wedded bliss! 😀
whats your idea of a dream wedding? do share!! if you don’t let me know you’re here it’s like i’m talking to myself. and that makes me look crazy.
