Quotable: Wedding Edition #1

Miss Manners, on tossing the boquet:

That you find this custom silly and dislike being pushed into it, Miss Manners can understand... If you are pushed forward, take the hand of one of those toddlers -- whose presence incidentally shows that no one but you takes this seriously -- and help her catch the bouquet.

--Miss Manners, from a column on August 19, 2009, The Washington Post

  1. How clever! I do hate being pushed forward, but what a nice way to deal with it gracefully.
