So, I’m a first time waiting bee poster, but I’ve been reading for weeks. I won’t bore you all with details and backstory (unless you ask), but suffice it to say my “un-hubby” and I have been together for 3 years, live together, and we have a 2 year old son. (It’s waaaay past time for me, but he’s blissfully ignorant) I did, however, recently pour my heart out to him, expressing how I felt, and how past ready I was. We hadn’t talked about the ‘m’ word in over a year. He said he wasn’t going anywhere, I was too special to him and I had nothing to worry about. (That was the end of the convo, basically)
ANYway, onto the reason for my post. We were at some friends’ wedding last night and what better way to put him in the mood than that, right? So, after NOT catching the bouquet, I walk back to our table, and very obviously and animatedly snapped my fingers and w/ a frowny, pouty face said “oh, darn” (hahaha) “Un-hubby” says “you shoulda jumped higher.” (??!!??!!) Trust me, the way this bride threw that bouquet, a kangaroo couldn’t have jumped that high. Fast forward to a little while later, we’re on the dance floor, and he’s holding my right hand. Says, “where’d you get that ring?” (It was a sparkly costume jewelery type ring) I say “this? pssshh, I’ve had it for awhile. My other boyfriend gave it to me a while back. hahaha”(we have a running joke btwn us about our ‘other bf’s and gf’s’, even though there are none) To which he replies “well, it’s on the wrong hand, and on the wrong finger” I immediately reply “yeah, tell me about it!” (inside I’m like OMGOMGOMGOMG) But that was the end of it, nothing, nada, crickets! We just kept dancing, and nothing else exciting or nerve racking was said.
Fellow bees, what do you think? All feedback is most definitely welcome! Oh, and btw, I’ve actually been doing Mr. Bee’s backup plan, and didn’t even know it! How psyched I was to see I was doing exactly the right thing! 😀
