Keeping Flower Girls In Line

June 5, 2008

I read this story today on CNN about people stressing over flower girls running amok and ruining their wedding:

Flower Girl Meltdown

I realize getting married is stressful and all...unless you're getting married to a charming, sweet, even-keeled romeo like me. However, I wish people would realize that children aren't the free radicals that everyone seems to make them out to be. A simple chat with them about how important their role is will help keep them in line. Nothing pleases either of my children more than being told that they are a great help and being very useful. Well, nothing aside from ice cream, fairy books, playing with the wooden train table at Barnes & Noble, that is. But I digress.

Besides, if that little chat with the flower girl doesn't work out for you, try reminding them that Sephiroth is lurking in the background.

Hopefully by the time I get married, flower girls will be replaced by some kind of equally cute robot.

You sir are a genius. That is the greatest joke tie-in ever. Now you just need to make them play through FFVII to understand it.

Ashley and I have solved this issue, for I will be our flower girl... Maybe not...

If I ever get married, there will be no kids AT the wedding, much less in it! Children are icky.
LOVE the final VII reference, though. :D

I'll be honest with you guys...the only reason I brought this up was to drop the Final Fantasy VII reference.

The problem with your idea, Frank, is that robots always turn against humanity, and that would ruin your honeymoon night, I'm sure.

I agree with the no "flower girl robots" policy. it would be only a matter of time before they became self-aware and we would find ourselves in a cross between Terminator and My Best Friends Wedding. *shudder*
