I’m not sure what it is about the show My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, but everytime I scroll past and one particular episode is on I am completely transfixed. I theorize that it is my brain trying to comprehend what it is that I’m actually seeing, and perhaps it’s just not possible to do because each time I walk away more confused than the time before.
How is it that this family can afford to have not one, but two wedding dresses made completely from fresh flowers by a woman they’ve flown in from Chicago?…but also be missing multiple teeth? Is it a lack of priorities? Do they just not value teeth? I don’t know. Were all those fresh flowers too expensive for the groom to afford a shirt to wear on his big day? Who knows? Why is that a pig carrying their rings down the aisle? I mean I really do like pigs a lot, but as cute as Speckles was I do not think he would’ve been my first choice for that job.
As I walk away to begin dinner preparations, I’m left perplexed by how that exact episode has managed to take time out of my life once again. Is it the girl? The dress? The teeth…or the lack thereof? The pig? The pickup truck that carried the girl in that dress, and undoubtedly the pig too? I don’t know, but I think I’m going to turn the TV off awhile. 🙂
