To each his own. To me my own.

The Royal Wedding

Well, the big day has finally arrived! The Royal Wedding will take place in less than 24 hours. I must ask beforehand that you forgive the sarcastic undertone of this post. You see, for the past couple of weeks I’ve heard more than my share of negative comments and opinions about the Royal Wedding – in turn, this has propelled me into smartass-Bon mode (not good). Allow me to elaborate.

The original title of this post was “Asses that attempt to ruin Royal Weddings“. I have since changed it, but still thought it noteworthy. I didn’t change it because I no longer believe negative people to be asses… I changed it because I didn’t want the word to be in the same sentence as Royal Wedding. So there. (Negative people – that means you’re still an ass.)

Additionally, I will make it my mission to overuse the words Royal Wedding in this post. If this offends you, know that I find that awesome. Now, on to more talk about the Royal Wedding. Because I can.

Most of the posts I see are so very redundant. If you’re so bored and ‘over’ the Royal Wedding, must you use your precious time to talk about it? By doing this, aren’t you allowing even more ‘air time’ to the Royal Wedding? Here’s some food for thought: posting comments of how sick you are of the Royal Wedding translates into how very intriguing and appealing it must be to you. If you’re truly sick of the Royal Wedding, why not simply change channels or read on to something else? Or perhaps there’s something deeper going on than meets the eye, other than the Royal Wedding. (Hey, how am I doing on that overuse thing?)

Here’s my comparison: when the college ball games were all going on a few weeks back, that entire series of games seemed to last for about a year. I know for a fact that I’m not the only person who doesn’t follow or care for it. But I absolutely would not post on Twitter, FB, ABC News, etc.: “No one gives a s**t about college basketball!!” It would be ridiculous. Why? Because yes, people do exist that give a s**t about college basketball.

Well, so what? It’s my status or comment, and I’ll post what I want! Isn’t that the purpose of it all? Freedom of speech, baby – take it or leave it. I choose to take it. So back off.

Okay, yeah it IS your comment. As far as freedom of speech, I beg to differ – we do not have anything of the sort here in America. There’s only a handful of things we may blurt out without risk of offense to others. If we do say something inappropriate we get blasted for it, or even worse, sued. Freedom of speech, pfftthh – sore subject with me. I’ll save that for another post to be listed in the category The Angry American. Coming soon to a blog near you.

Okay Bon. So what’s your point? If it’s my post and I can write about what I want, and I want to write about how much I hate all the hype of the Royal Wedding, what the heck IS your point?

Here’s my bottom line. Very rarely do we the people get the opportunity to enjoy anything good on the news. Everything is terrorism, war and soldiers dying, missing people, rape, murder and catastrophic weather events. The Royal Wedding is a bright spot in the midst of a storm – dare I even say it brings a ray of light and hope to many. I realize that women tend to be more susceptible to swoon over a fairytale romance, but I also know of quite a few men who appreciate it too. Not swoon over it, mind you – but appreciate it. Who couldn’t use an extra serving of love?

I guess everyone’s got something to say about something – this just happens to be mine. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to enjoy a fantastic Royal Wedding with the haters left scurrying behind me. Cheers!!

  1. I hope the Royal Wedding will be on the Internet live! We don’t have TV. We watch news and whatever else there is on the Internet.

    I have been fortunate to have been totally unaware of the negative hype on the Royal Wedding, other than on your blog. I agree with you, Bonnie. Who cares if they don’t like it. I’m glad I’ve missed their negative talk. I think the majority of Americans are interested, or at least not against, hearing about and even watching the Royal Wedding. There are always naysayers on every worthwhile event or subject.

    Blessings to you, Bonnie…

      You know, I’m sure it will be but I can’t find any documentation on it so far. I would think if anyone aired it, it would be BBC.com. Yes, this little blog is my vent through which I try to release steam slowly in order to avoid a full blow. HA! I can’t understand it though, who doesn’t like seeing love? I should know the answer to that, because it takes all kinds. I hope you enjoy watching, Carol Ann. Blessings to you!

    You don’t know how glad I am to read this and your opinion. I’m English myself, and thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Wedding. It’s a symbol of Britishness, celebration, patriotism and tradition. I agree with you, haters who simply talk more about an event, just publicise it further and yes, it’s about time there was something positive to watch on the news. Being English, my eyes were glued to the TV through the entire wedding. I hope you enjoyed watching it too! Great post. Rebecca.

      Oh, I’m so glad to hear your opinion on it as well! I looked forward to the Royal Wedding for months. All the crabby people out there who complained about it have moved on to bigger and better things by now, I’m sure. Months prior to the wedding, I took the day off so I could watch it live. It meant getting up at 4am to see the pre-festivities, but I’d do it over and over again no questions asked! It was such a lovely wedding and everyone looked so happy. I wish them all the happiness in the world and am glad to hear they’re finally on their honeymoon now! 🙂
