It was weird when my friend told me that she was getting engaged. She would be my first friend to get married. (and I think weddings are boring!!!)
I never knew until college that girls fantasized about their wedding day since they were little. Suddenly it made sense why there were slews of wedding magazines in supermarkets.
I missed that whole cultural phenomenon. Don't really mind. Quite happy to miss it, frankly.
But my life would have been easier if I had read fashion magazines regularly. Just to understand what was going on. In middle school and high school, I subscribed to MAD, while everyone else read Seventeen. My friend was smart, she subscribed to both MAD and Seventeen. Too bad I didn't meet her until college.
and, yeah, I had to ask her, "What exactly do you do at a bridal shower?" Apparently, it's all female and with gifts and food.
Anyways, Jessica and John's wedding is going to be awesome. It's going to be small and we're all going drinking afterwards and she's going to trash her wedding dress! None of this nostalgia crap.
