Even though Prince William is my age, I have never had much interest in him. And though I have a weird attraction to partially balding men he just doesn't do it for me. I don't know why. He isn't ugly. He's educated. He has health insurance.
All that to say, this royal wedding stuff is really over my head. Like, way over my head. Like, I don't get it.
I want to get it. I want to be giddy as I'm watching this (which I am, right now), but I'm not.
Maybe I'm an uneducated American who's culturally inept.
Maybe I'm remembering that American patriots fought a war against this bullshit monarchy and said, "NO MORE ROYAL WEDDINGS." Or something along those lines. I guess they were more pissed off about paying taxes to a king without any representation in his government, but STILL. Jenna Bush got married and I didn't have to pay for it. Isn't this kind of the same thing? Yeah, he's in line for the crown, but...that crown isn't technically in charge of anything, I mean save a few things.
I guess in 30 years I can tell my kids all about this day.
It's a toss-up, really.
Side note: I absolutely would not mind people having viewing parties in my honor on my wedding day. I also would not object to sharing the stage with some really old English nuns, who I am totally prettier than, because that's what it's all about. Being the prettiest.
I would however object to my husband "choosing" not to wear a wedding ring. I don't care who the F you are, you marry me, you are mine and you will wear my damn ring.
