The Last Dance

You know; for as long as I’ve been doing this blog, some of the best stories to talk about continue to be the ones that make absolutely no sense. For instance, meet 36-year-old Brooke Burke of Strongsville, OH. Brooke attended the wedding of James and Margaret Burke last weekend. Brooke is the bride’s new sister-in-law (she’s married to the groom’s brother).
Well, a day that James and Margaret wanted to remember forever will indeed be unforgettable, but for reasons different than you think. At the wedding reception, Brooke began slow-dancing with the groom, when things became uncomfortable and the bride asked her to stop. For some reason, Brooke refused to stop and kept slow-dancing with the groom. At which time, chaos broke out.
Witnesses said that Brooke tried to hit the bride, pushed a pregnant woman, screamed at two men, fell to the ground kicking and screaming, pushed another man down, hit a police officer and then tried to get in her car to leave while allegedly intoxicated. Wow! The result…she was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
The story then went viral and was picked up by just about every media outlet in the universe. Talk about making this wedding day one to remember. Many witnesses tried to justify Brooke’s behavior by saying that she was noticeably drunk and visibly intoxicated at the reception.
You know; we’ve all seen or heard about wedding reception experiences like this and people making asses of themselves. For example, I once saw a guy literally get knocked unconscious on the dance floor during a drunken rush for the garter belt. So the question becomes…is a wedding the place to get hammered beyond comprehension? Is out-of-control behavior acceptable? Should you party harder if you’re in the wedding party? Is grinding and extreme slow-dancing acceptable between non-spouses? Should you care what you do there or in front of who? And what about this Brooke? Chalk it up to possible drunk behavior? White trash behavior? You be the judge!
