my fortune cookie tells me i'm going to have a party
ABC news has been blathering on about Jenna Bush's wedding. It's a private affair. A low-key "down-home" sorta deal. They don't want to make a big deal about it. And she and her father have been doing the interview circuit about how private it is.
And then the anchor came on, looking wistful.
"I've done twice what the President is doing tomorrow. Giving away a daughter, it's a joyous occasion. Still, it's hard for a father."
Because a daughter is her father's possession, until she becomes her husband's possession.
