Ask Elnora--About Weddings?????
Did someone get married today? Wait, let Elnora get her tea and pastries. I do believe there was a very important event this morning. Early this morning. Very, very early in Colonist time. But thankfully, we have about eight million news outlets covering the Royal Wedding (why is that always in CAPS???) so Elnora won't have to miss her beauty sleep or any detail of this grand affair. Sigh. Don't you just love a wedding?
While I got married in a private ceremony wearing a Gunny Sack dress (remember those back in the seventies--yes, Elnora was a flower child), I've always loved weddings. And I cry like a big bawling baby at weddings. We have several questions to consider this morning (early this morning) regarding Kate and Wills and weddings in general.
1. Why do we love weddings so much?
2. Why do we love a prince and his princess so much??
3. Why do we still believe in fairy tales even though reality isn't so pretty?
And 4. Did anyone get a look at her shoes????
My darlings, it's all about lasting love and happiness. It's about being hopeful in a world where jaded people are tired and weary and skeptical and cynical. I still believe in love and hope and happily ever after and I don't care if it starches the queen's knickers!! So, let's discuss. Or rather, someone start the discussion while Elnora find the Community Dark coffee and pours herself a big mug. Not very ladylike but then did I mention it's rather early for me??
