A Happy Couple... First and Foremost

I've been watching the news shows this morning...

And it amazes me at what is the "top news" some mornings.

England's Prince William's engagement is the top news.

Uh. Okay.

I guess I have to be British to understand all of this.

All I know, if you're gonna wait 8 years on a man... this is how you do it. You better wait on a Prince... not these jokers who are tripping. LOL

We in America don't have a royal family. I think our royal family is the Kennedys.


Anyway, this is the top story. All spotlights on them. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I remember, when I was 10 years old, watching the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. This was a BIG event at our house. And I guess that I was at the age where I was heavy into my Barbie dolls, etc... I was to get a chance to see a real life Princess.

This Princess didn't look like me, of course.

And I watched this wedding, thinking, even at the age of 10, that Diana was the luckiest woman in the world. She would never have to work. She was pretty. Her life was set.

Then, years later, I completely understood what the word DYSFUNCTIONAL meant.

When it came out how she was all suicidal and bulimic... how the Prince was cheating on her, and how miserable she was... I was like, WOW.

Even though the Royal Family is considered the epitome of perfection... It simply isn't true. They have to be the most dysfunctional folks I've ever seen.

Of course dysfunction is magnified by media attention. But I wouldn't call depression, bulimia, infedelity, emotional abuse, and suicidal tendencies light issues. Shocked me that a Princess was going through this.

And let's not even talk about the Kennedys, America's royal family of sorts. YIKES!

I have reconciled that fortune and fame don't cancel out dysfunction. Really, it doesn't.

This is what I think about when I watch all the oohing and ahhing and excitement over this impending wedding of the millinieum.

I hope this couple is a happy couple FIRST. Not a royal couple. Not a couple put on the highest of pedastals.

(And I hope they keep the Queen out of their business. Shoot!!)

A happy and whole couple first and foremost. A peaceful couple.

I think that's what we all want for them, and our own lives...

Isn't it.


  1. "keep the Queen out of their business" and everybody else also. If they want to get married at the drive through at Kentucky Fried Chicken, then they should do it. Trying to live up to the unrealistic fantasies of the masses is a recipe for failure.

    But this really aint top news.


  2. I don't like to talk about the elderly but the Queen need to sit down somewhere. She is always vetting people. She was always in Princess Diana and Charles business and I read in the beginning she didn't like Prince William's fiancee. I bet she gave ole Camilla (Prince Charles's wife) hell. lol

    Dysfunction is the new black but them damn royals take it to a whole NOTHER level!!!

  4. Perhaps you should expound upon appearances v. reality..


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
