My mother is Mrs. Bennet

Today my mother told me that the song that she and I will dance to at my wedding is My Little Girl by Tim McGraw.

THIS SONG. THIS ONE.
  1. I don't even like country music, and I would find this kind of thing really embarassing!
  2. Can you tell my mother's never been married and fetishizes weddings, like a lot?
  3. THE BRIDGE IS SO INSULTING TO THE PROSPECTIVE GROOM.
    I know he'll say that he's in love / But between you and me. he won't be good enough
    WTF THAT IS NOT A WEDDING SONG
  4. I'm not even in the sort of relationship where marriage is part of the game plan.
  5. And as far as my mother knows, I'm single.  Hence the title of this blog post.
  6. This song is explicitly from the perspective of a father? Which is kind of a sore spot for me, since I was raised by an abusive alcoholic single mother.
  7. Hey, thinking about that last bit, my mother is not actually going to be invited to any wedding I might hypothetically have someday in the distant future.
I suppose the fantasy won't hurt her for now since god only knows if I'll do a wedding in my life, but Jesus Christ is this just so disconnected from reality.  I'd almost feel bad for her, if watching that video didn't make me feel like I need to take a shower.
