Now, what I initially appreciated was the suggestion that there are only a very few types of wedding a person might attend:
- Roman Catholic
- judge's office
Just as well to be clear about what is and is not appropriate.
But what made me make the leap from smirking to myself to taking a picture, flipping it, and posting it to the internet was "typing, as way to meet boys."
Because neither typing nor meeting boys have ever been my super-strong suit, but it is not my impression that that's likely to be successful, unless we're talking about actually embarking on a secretarial career to meet men, right?*
Day 26 of our month** of gratitude: I am thankful for books — old books in particular — and the collected wisdom of the ages. I am thankful for rules*** and guidelines and instruction on expectations. But I am even thankfuller for a discerning mind that permits me to follow those guidelines when they apply, to laugh at them when they are foolish, and to reject them outright when they are dangerous.
*I did eventually read the passage in question. Turns out it's the college (high school?) equivalent of a secretarial career: Learn to type, because boys need their theses typed. Ohforcryingoutloud.
**I initially typed "moth." I thought that was funny.
***Unrelated to anything, but amusing to me: My current color of nail polish is called "Princesses Rule." The nail polish company gets points for literalness, I guess.
