Ten rules for dating my daughter show
As Cameron explains, modern weddings are much like royal coronations, only more expensive.Aside from the writing of checks, there is not much fathers understand about them.Why can't guests successfully eat, drink, and dance unless the whole event is as carefully choreographed as a Broadway production?With his characteristic wit, Cameron captures the aspects of the wedding that are the most ridiculous to paternal eyes, for example: • why the wedding needs a theme (this one is "We're all stressed out") • why the wedding has to be photographed as if it will be reviewed by the Warren Commission • why the bouquet must include a species of flower found only at the tip of the Himalayas • why the wedding dress has to strike the right mood (which, judging from everyone's behavior, might best be summed up as "crabby") Throughout it all, however, a father keeps faith that the wedding -- if not the wedding preparation -- will make his daughter a happy woman. I think this talk about "John Ritter is gone, the show is going to die! There is still Katy Sagal who is a wonderful comic actress in her own right, as well as a now established acting family at the show.I think before we start crying the death of the series, we should give the show a few weeks to pick up the pieces and see where they go from here.A nice sequel to 8 simple rules for dating my teenager daughter, with guaranteed laughs at every page.I have to admit my favorite character was the obnoxious Alicia, a real Bridezilla.
(And even if you do have a heart of stone, this feel-good, universally-relatable book will very likely find and then touch your soft spot.)Explores the surreal phenomenology of Bridezillas; the cold, hard truth that having daughters who will marry when they are grown is essentially an assurance the credit card companies will temporarily own you someday; how the list of bridal "must-haves" is long and expensive enough to deplete even the deepest of pockets, and the process of planning a wedding is convoluted enough to irritate even the most saintly among us; managing the complicated task of successfully blending families together (or at least preventing homicide during dual-family events that make the impossible demand of asking water and oil to mix) is sometimes harder than it initially appears; and finally, remembering how this whole complicated, beautiful, nerve-racking mess is supposed to be about love and the ties that bind us together. One will have a much better appreciation for the content if you have ever planned a wedding before.
Hilarious yet poignant, 8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter is sure to be a comfort to the legions of fathers (and mothers) who will one day have a daughter walking down the aisle.
