The royal ‘I do’

I don’t want to poo poo on anyone’s parade here, but I can’t figure out why half of America (and by default that should include their husbands, too, I guess) is so excited about the royal wedding. Or is it just weddings in general? Wait wait, relatively unknown girl meets prince and against all odds becomes princess… it’s the storyline of pretty much every Disney movie! I get it now.

But here in the real world, the royal happenings usually have nothing to do with anything or anyone over here, except that Meghan Markle is (or was, according to Wikipedia) an American actress. By the by, she was also a briefcase girl on “Deal or No Deal,” which sounds slightly sexist in today’s culture, also pointed out by this guy.

There wasn’t this much hype around her first wedding, why this one? Ohhhh because it’s the royal family. She’ll be a princess. She’ll be a queen. Um, nope! Harry, her fiancé or husband depending on when you read this, is 6th in line to the throne! In other words, he’s just chillin’ and now she’ll be just chillin’, too, kind of like winning the lottery for her, I guess.

I’m not upset about the marriage or “the big day” for the happy couple, just curious. I’ve heard some folks are waking up in the wee hours of the morning to watch the ceremony. Y’all crazy! But hey while you’re at it, can you go ahead and feed my dogs? 🙂
