Weddings ... are like dodos

Got back from a wedding with mom. While sitting there waiting for our long overdue food, watching people resorting to satisfy their hunger eating chillies the thought crossed my mind, these big elaborate weddings are like dinosaurs. They have long passed their shelf lives. No one really wants to be here nor do they feel they are in any way close to the bride or groom. They probably feel that since they they were "summoned" to this wedding, they might as well make the best of it by food. No one is talking to each other and everybody just bolts to the door when even the whiff of the last dish arrives ... (traditionally a sweetener). 

I predict that huge wedding dinners are going the way of the dodo as soon as we are done with the older generation. Once that is out of the door, you will see no more of this weddings, which to me is a shame as in a kind of strange way I like these weddings because:
1. I never have to pay for them. This is another one of my gripe with these things. These people invite you and for the life of me I really don't see why we got to like cough up money to give to them when we go. There is even a bloody market rate for how much you are supposed to give!
2. There is nice food
3. Most of the time you get to see some really sexy aunty trying to squeeze their ample body into these dresses better suited for their daughters and what can I say I am a MILF fan ..

Anyway, I am just going to make the best of the situation currently and enjoy these things while they are here for god knows my daughter will never have to go through this for me.
