- Wedding: September 2018
Just a story, no need to read it but just thought I’d share.
It was SOs birthday yesterday. We went to his favourite restaurant (we ate so much fish!). Afterwards we walked to get a taxi and being a bit tipsy I *STUPIDLY* brought up our timeline. Now, I thought we had agreed next summer but I think that was wishful thinking. And I am becoming increasingly impatient on the run up to Christmas. This isn’t verbatum, but it’s the basic jist. I went from confused and upset (totally without reason) to kind of contented.
So he says “after you graduate” (I leave in June but don’t have the ceremony until September)
and I said “yeah, but wheeeeeen?? Anything between ‘after I graduate’ and infinity isn’t good enough, have you got the ring” (I know, so dumb)
Him: “I thought the whole point was to not know, so you can be surprised”
Me “yeah, you’re right”
Him “anyway I have to ask your Dad first” (for those of you that don’t know, I know he asked my Dad in the summer, see this post He asked my Dad, when will he ask me…?)
Me (calling his bluff) “he might not give his permission”
Him “oh, have you not spoken with you Dad”
Me “he’s excited”
Him “why?”, I said nothing then him “anyway, I might have asked you Dad already”
Me (bursting with excitement but still trying to call his bluff) “you haven’t seen my Dad to ask him”
Him “I saw him in the summer”
Me “I don’t want to talk about this anymore, I’m going to wait for the surprise”
Him “What surprise?” again I said nothing then a little while later “Jim was annoyed he didn’t give me his answer straight away anyway” (Jim is my Dads friend who was visiting at the time)
He’s such a tease!!
So, no proposal. I just have to be patient. Really bad at this!!
