day 23 - a song that you want to play at your wedding
I didn't know people thought about things like this. Picking a song to play at your "wedding" like I'm going to have one or something? That's like naming your children or your dog before you meet them. Makes no sense to me.
Sure, when I was little I imagined I had a giant red dog named Ox who had absolutely nothing to do with the giant red dog named Clifford. Ox was more feral and hyena-y and ate chipmunks and lilacs, because those were the two things that were most prominent in my parents' backyard. He was extremely protective of me. Oh, and I had an imaginary mustang named Astronaut who lived under the apple tree and I was the only one who could ride him because I was patient and kind and could totally speak horse. But I don't ever plan on owning a horse or a dog with those names.
Quaint little child, eh?
So I need to come up with a song to play at my wedding. Since I have no boyfriend, fiance, or possible marriage in sight, this seems pointless. But a meme is a meme, and memes are unstoppable.
Traditionally at weddings, the bride dances with her dad, correct? Because my dad and I have an anthem, and this is it.
Sure, it's not exactly appropriate for a father/daughter dance, but fuck that, right? That's what makes the song perfect. People will probably scoff and wonder why we aren't playing "Butterfly Kisses" or "Wonderful Tonight" or some other fucking nancypants song, and them I will REFER TO THE LYRICS.
Although apparently now it's all hip to start dancing with your dad and then bust out Soulja Boy choreography halfway through the song to show that you're his special little girl, but ya'll can pal around be goofy cuz u don't take sh*t 2 srsly.
(Sorry, I have this weird obsession right now with sporadic, mean-tempered textspeak)
On another note: My boss (I have two) and her wife got their civil union license yesterday. Hooray for separate but equal! You lesbians have to use the lesbian bathroom, but at least we let you go inside now.
