Oh, to be young again...
I ran across this at work, really. Apparently there are some super enterprising parents out there. There's a website, of course, where one can actually
put your daughter up for auctionto be married and make a killing ranging from roughly 6 grand to 100 grand. And whose idea was it to stamp a gaudy yellow engaged on their forehead? No dignity can be found in the, um, ad placement Miss $5,995 right next to Miss $79,995. I want to know more about who proposes to these girls. Finally, why oh why must the bride prices end in ...995? Must be a science to bride price marketing that we are not privy to; probably the same clever folks that gave us goofy car prices and that damn $19.95..but I digress. I know I shouldn't throw stones ;) but....
Marissa's parents don't sound too supportive:
Marissa likes to put on airs and thinks she’s better than all of us here and who knows maybe she’s right. She’s looking for a smart, sophisticated man who knows “art” and “culture” and “style” and who can understand her better than we can.
