Party On, People!

A couple getting married convened a meeting for their parents to discuss paying for the wedding.

The groom’s father declared that he had loved polka music all his life and the band needed to play only polka music or he’d be quite unhappy.

The bride’s mother responded that his love of polka music put him squarely in the minority of the people who would be attending, and so for the sake of the greater party-goers, polka music was out.

The groom-dad yelled how he knew that everyone would realize how much better polka music was than any other type, and that any wedding that didn’t have polka music would be a disaster.

The bride then spoke up, reminded the groom’s father that it wasn’t his wedding, and that of the six of them in the room, four wanted the band to play popular music so everyone could get up and dance.

Majority ruled.  The groom-dad fumed and grumbled all through the wedding, making everyone around him wretched and sorry they had accepted his invitation.  But those who didn’t know the dad, or smartly stayed out of his way, had an absolutely fabulous time at the party, dancing and swaying and even singing along to the mainstream entertainment presented by the couple and her parents.

The world didn’t end because no polka music was played; the couple still resent the dad for the misery he tried to inject into their happy day; and I’m sure you get that this is an allegory.

HEALTH YES, WE CAN!
