"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!
