|La Feria en La Ceiba, May 2011.|
As some of the 99% are occupying Wallstreet and beyond, and questioning our chosen forms of commerce and oppression, I'm downloading Excel spreadsheets that contain every triviality imaginable, related to consumer-style weddings. It's the infection of consumerism in every part of our lives, every celebration we have. Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentine's day...buy, buy, buy!
Problem is, how do I seperate the triviality from the necessity? Ask me to get a spoiled or fearful horse into a trailer, I'm your girl. Ask me about wedding traditions and expectations, do's and DO NOTs...well I'm a wedding virgin with very little experience in this girly realm. Do I REALLY need a "going away" outfit with accessories? Do I have to get the groom a gift (isn't that me???). Seriously.
Fortunately, Humberto and I are going to be celebrating this big event with our friends and family in Honduras. There are just some extravagances that won't be possible here....whoopy! There will however, be other adventures I am sure. For example, I fully plan to put "Donkey ride to the church." in the transportation section of our budget.
The adventure continues. ¡Viva la revolucion!
