Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend?

That is the meanest thing anyone has ever come up with.

I’m not the first one to blog about this, either.  It’s actually quite a popular topic.

Women everywhere are outraged with this fictitious branding.  What if I said “Men prefer Nikes over real relationships!” and flaunted it as if that were a great advertisement for Nike tennis shoes? That’s such a stupid idea! People would call me an idiot!

Well, Carol sang about it (video above for your viewing pleasure). I’ll say, though she rocks that song, and the lyrics do nail some good points (diamonds last longer than all of her relationships combined), I’d still have to stand behind what I already know :It is a stupid phrase.

(Hannah must not have any diamonds) Is that really what you just thought?

Well, I don’t have any. So you’re right if that really is what you thought.

My point is, my best friend is not stone.  She is beautiful and real and I get to watch her marry an incredible man in just a little more than a month.  I will be all smiles and it will be full of emotion and I will not once think “Gosh, this is so great, if only my diamond were here to share this moment with me!”

Please, don’t have a best friend that is your watch or your car or something so incredibly dumb and not alive. And definitely don’t sing about.

Lesson learned, Carol!

Gotta run, that bowtie calls, and those steaks aren’t going to deliver themselves!
