Your opinion on wedding reception cake-smashing into faces: Fun or Ugh?
Ugh. I told Hulky I would kill him if he does that (going to avoid cake cutting altogether if I can). The anxiety of being the center of attention is bad enough. Embarrassment would push me over the edge.
Fun. I'm always a little disappointed if they're polite about it.
I just started yet another take-down of FSOG. Yet another view giving me things I hadn't seen before. i need to get my story finished so I can move on!
I'm procrastinating on my edits (shame on me) so I'm reading about cake-smashing at weddings instead. It really seems like one of those subjects that should be discussed with the future spouse beforehand if one feels strongly either way.
Also, someone in a comment thread related the horrifying story of a wedding he/she had recently attended. The couple had decided that they were just going to feed each other a bite of the cake, not do the big old face smash. Offended about this, the bride's sister ran up to the table and smashed cake in their faces.
I told hubby that unless he wanted it followed by a swift kick to the nadds, he better not smash cake in my face....
(the fact that i had a sword and about 8 knives at my wedding probably had nothing to do with him playing nice)
Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
For me, it is a NO GO. Absolutely not. While I am perfectly playful in private (Alliteration Points!), I am very shy and reserved in public. Having a piece of cake smashed into my face in front of my community would embarrass me greatly.
The stories I've now wasted two hours reading are awful. (And these are true smashing stories - not the little daub of frosting on the nose ritual - where one party said no and the other did it anyway.) One groom was so upset that he walked right out of the reception and didn't come back.
"Fact is, we're the freaks, the misfit mutants surrounded by readily-available (and free) information about the evils of fat, the benefits of whole-grains etc. From an evolutionary point of view we're the weirdos with a short-life expectancy or we're trail-blazing a 'new' path." ~ AlanC
