| Manolo for the Big Girl

First of all, because I KNOW my family e-stalks me on this thing, I have to announce that I Am Not Getting Married.

Really. I have two lifetime commitments and those are to Jesus and the lady who does my eyelash extensions (Hi Shelsea! Hi!) and if I’m overdue  for a fill and the only availbility she has is on a Sunday. Well. I don’t think I need to finish that sentence.

Anyhoodle, for NO REASON AT ALL I’ve had marriage on the mind recently,  particularly engagement, so I’ll ask a question about that.

Today Miss Plumcake wants to know:

What do we think of the tradition of the fiancé asking Big Daddy’s permission before popping the question? Is it a sweet gesture or patronizing insult?

    Just as a quick aside, I also think that if you’re not into this tradition, that’s totally cool too – this is just the way I feel about it. :-) (PS – if you want to see the proposal, type “sonny and andrea” into YouTube, it’s the first one that comes up. :-D
