I guess I missed it
The Royal Wedding of the Duke & Dutchess of Cambridge was today... or yesterday. I'm not sure really how it matches-up with the Korean timezone.
Anyway, I watched a 4 minute highlight reel on BBC's homepage. It looked like fun.
I was 5 years old when the Duke and Dutchess of Wales got married. I don't remember too much, but I remember watching the wedding from a hotel room somewhere in the States (Montana) with my mom, dad, and sister. Sandy had a paper doll book where you could dress-up the royal couple in various garb - including a polo suit for Charles, and discreet swimwear for England's Rose.
I think I was playing with a new Tonka truck set that my parents bought for me at a local department store. The truck had a horse trailer with two removable horses. Sandy and I hooked-up the horses with shoe laces to pull the trailer and we put the overly tall and two-dimensional Duke & Dutchess in the horse trailer to be pulled-through the shag rug for their royal wedding procession recreation.
I'm remembering this for the first time today.
