The Texting Bride A Poster Child For Texting Addiction

 "The Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups doesn't talk about "Going to the chapel and I'm going to text all my friends during the wedding that I'm gonna get married."

That's because those lyrics would be ridiculous (Oh, and they weren't texting in the 1960's). But alas, it's 2011 and apparently no one can even get through a special occasion without typing on their mobile phone.

Case in point, the bride texting down the aisle. The guy who video taped the wedding caught her texting right after he dad had walked her down the aisle. She stands there with her dad as the ceremony begins, and pulls her phone out of her dress and starts texting someone from underneath her veil. Her dad notices what she is doing and I think I know what he was thinking:

"I can't believe I've just walked my baby down the aisle. It seems like just yesterday she was just a baby. I'm so glad I could be here with her on this special day. She looks so beautiful today....wait, her head is down, is she OK? What...is that her phone? What is she doing? Is she texting on her phone right now?"

Our we love our gadgets and multi-tasking is fun. It's addicting. I'm addicted. I'm writing this blog post while watching a TV show. Sorry, can't tell you the plot of the TV show at all. My brain can only focus on one thing even though I'm doing two things.

That's my point. It's no big deal that I can't tell you what's going on with a TV show. But it IS a big deal when you are missing out on an important part of your life and the little special moments that come with it.

Don't miss them over a texting addiction!

What do you think the texting bride missed?
