I Blame Status Updates and Tweets

21 Oct

This past weekend, I attended a wedding in Charleston. I tell you that so you’ll understand why I was in the vicinity of Charleston’s newspaper, The Post and Courier. Here’s an excerpt from the Weddings & Celebrations section, which I’m pretty sure the good lord wanted me to see:

Mr. and Mrs. _____ of Atlanta, GA, celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary with a romantic dinner at McCormick and Schmicks Seafood Restaurant in Atlanta.

Following dinner, the couple continued their quiet romantic evening at home, where they reflected on a great first year of marriage with soft R&B music, a bottle of wine, a steamy hot bubble bath, and enjoyed the top layer of their wedding cake.

Yes, yes, yes. It said that. In the NEWSPAPER! Inappropriate. Disgusting. Tacky.

I, of course, blame this on Mark Zuckerberg and the folks behind Twitter. We’ve become so accustomed to hearing every detail of people’s lives that we are now printing those ridiculous details in the newspaper. Show me the editor who allowed that. I’d like to give him or her a talking to.
