All the Single Ladies!

Beyonce's hit song was not played at my cousin's wedding last week, but it would have been fitting. As this picture clearly shows, all the singles ladies had their "hands up". Well, most of them...my uncle snapped this photo during the bouquet toss and then e-mailed it to me with this reply:

"PK, I'm disappointed to see how little effort you were putting out. You have to stick your hand out if your going to catch the fly ball at the park."

While I agree with his assessment, this old lady wasn't about to go head-to-head with the "drill team" in front of me. And don't even get me started on my cousin's four-year-old daughter McCall. She was out for blood! And that determination paid off! She actually caught the bouquet!

I guess I should take comfort that while I'm almost twice the age as most of these girls, I can still fool people. A few days before the wedding I was in Forever 21 trying on some sparkly outfits. I had a girlfriend with me, so I was frequently coming out of the dressing room to get her opinion. One such ensemble elicited this response from the sales girl: "Oh, my gosh! That is such a pretty dress! Are you going to your high school's Sweethearts Dance, too?"

The only response I could give her was: "Why, yes I am!"

Got to love today's youth! If they're not running you over to catch a bouquet, they're kissing your you-know-what to make a sale!

Little may have caught the bouquet but clearly she was not being a "lady" while doing it.... at least you left with yer dignity and didn't have her dress hiked up too!
Kudos!
