Wedding "Vowels"

So apparently LO is not giving up on this whole marriage idea. She has continued to grill me about if and when I would like to get married to the man she has chosen for me.

(From now on, I'm going to refer to him as PHD since I am sure her quest is far from over and I actually relish the idea of keeping him around for a very long time.)

So, in the car on the way to his house for dinner last night (yes, you read that right, he actually makes dinner for us!) here was the conversation:

LO: Mama, if you get married to PHD are you going to have to say wedding vowels?

Me: (very confused) What are wedding vowels?

LO: You know, like with this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never be empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way into darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.

Me: (in complete shock) LO, where did you learn that?

LO: From the movie "The Corpse Bride". (laughing) Those are the vowels he is supposed to say but he gets so nervous that he actually ends up saying, "With this candle I light your mother on fire." And then he lights her mother on fire. Isn't that funny?

Me: (At a loss for what to say) Um. Sure. I think.

I wasn't sure if:

  1. I should laugh at her use of the word "vowels" for the word "vows"
  2. I should worry that she is so fixated on marrying me off
  3. She was comparing me to a corpse
  4. She was telling me that PHD might light my mother on fire

One thing I do know for sure...I think she has watched that movie too many times.

Shabbat Shalom.

For the record, the vows on corpse bride are really sweet. And non-religious, which I thought was a nice touch.

Too damn cute. I'd say any guy who cooks for you is a very good prospect. Especially a PhD who does! Cheers & Shabbat Shalom, 'VJ'

Adorable! LO sounds like one sharp cookie (and a darn good shadchan, too!)

Found your blog via PT and RaggedyMom, thought I'd leave my first comment. I'm Hila.

Annie - Yes they are sweet and I agree that it is a nice touch that they were non-religious.

VJ - I agree - he seems to be a VERY good prospect.

Jessica and Ro - I need to watch it again now that I have heard her quoting it.

Hila - welcome!
