Well, yesterday we went off to the wedding as planned. I took my girls and we all looked very nice - all dressed in our finest. While at the wedding the brides mother came to our table and said there was a woman interested in my daughter and asked if she was available. This is the way matches are made in this part of the world. I laughed and said to tell the woman thank you, but my daughter being only on the verge of fifteen was much too young. We all had a giggle over it.
A while later the woman herself came to the table and stuck her hand out at me to shake. She was very abrupt about it all which I thought was pretty weird, but even weirder was that she completely ignorred the person sitting next to me and turned to my daughter to shake her hand. While she did this she looked my daughter up and down. It was disgusting! It was like she was checking out a peice of meat. Then she left. It was all so obvious that she was just checking out the goods. Who on earth would want to have that woman as a mother-in-law? So very low-class!
Other than that the wedding was fine. It was in a huge wedding hall that for some reason was decorated in pea-green. It had green spotlights too and did absolutely nothing to make anyones make-up look nice. Actually we all had a kind of greenish look to our complexions. These wedding halls must be designed by men who have no idea how women look in different kinds of lighting. Some of these wedding halls even have florescent lighting which make women look ghastly! I suppose if you are going out looking for a girl to marry your son off to you would have to consider the lighting. Obviously this lady though my daughter looked pretty good even though she looked a bit green!
Another wedding on Saturday - wedding season is in full swing!
