Well today a friend came over and suggested an arranged marriage for Charis with her son. I'll preface all this by saying I am very much into arranged marriages, not for my self mind you but for my children. Here's why...
1.It could solve a lot of problems.
2. I get to pick fun inlaws for us.
3. I like to be in control.
4. It satisfies the matchmaker gene I have in me that is always pairing ppl up.
Anyway, here's how it went...
They were a little shy at first.
Then Charis totally wigged out and rejected the whole idea. You see the bride does get a choice in arranged marriages.
Or maybe she didn't like lunch- it does look a little odd.
Then she got excited about the whole thing.
So she invited him to play- jumping on the bed's always fun-
And then they discovered Silas' trains. Charis loves trains. She and Silas are kindred spirits. Will liked them too.
She was impressed with his building skills...
Oh, maybe not...
Then he got the bridge together and we were impressed.
But Will's mom, who I will tell you suggested the whole thing, said her would be name out loud and it was off, just like that...
Nope, not gonna happen, sorry Will....there are plenty more fish in the sea.
