The wedding with the perverted bear

Last weekend was spent in Harrisonburg, Virginia at my cousin’s wedding, which accounts for part of the lack of swimming and BJJ that I mentioned in my last post. The wedding was held at an old country church with a beautiful view of a lake and meadow out one side, and a farm on the other. Nerfy, Sister, and I had fun spending time with the family, wrangling wedding guests, and being badly behaved. As Nerfy rightly noted in her comment , I have been remiss in my reporting on the weekends activities. There are two important events to record.

First, we foiled the bride and groom’s attempts to circumvent our plans to detail their car before leaving the reception. One minute, we were sitting at our table, busily comatose with too much food and wedding cake. The next minute, when we heard the rumor that the bride and groom were about to leave, we sprang into action and made sure that any and everybody who saw them drive past that evening would be in no doubt of what they had been up to that day.

One of the most defining moments of the trip, however, came courtesy of the local Shoney’s. There was a small area off to the side of the lobby which had the usual candy and toy machines, video games, etc. Somebody at the Shoney’s had the brilliant idea of providing children with lollipops. That’s fine; I completely understand why you might want to offer candy at a place that markets to families and children. However, I don’t understand the manner in which they did it. Are we wrong in thinking there’s something not quite kosher here?
