Okay, Bees. I’m a regular poster and have unfortunately left some clues that could lead back to my true identity, so I’ve decided to post InCognito for this one. 🙂 I’m doing this JUST in case my SO WB stalks me – I don’t want him to think I’m on to him and then punish me by not doing what he originally intended to do if that makes sense. 😉
SO and I have gone ’round and ’round about engagement/marriage. and have agreed on October 31st as the drop dead date – we will be engaged by then come hell or high water. (SO’s words, not mine.) He wants to plan it and make it special and a surprise, and I want him to have that.
I have a very significant birthday coming up a week from Saturday. This also happens to be the anniversary of our first date. He has told me in the past that he will not propose on my birthday, but some recent behavior has led me to believe that he’s planning something for my birthday.
This is very disjoined, so try to follow me. 😉 SO has a Friend at work that has a contact at a local jewelry supplier (read: real stuff, cheaper prices) about 30 miles from home. It is where Friend bought his fiancee’s ring for a fraction of the cost. Several months ago, I had left a business card with the style and size of ring I wanted from a local department store on the back of the toilet. Friend called, and SO disappeared downstairs (where our bathroom is) for about 15 minutes. The next time I went downstairs, the card had mysteriously moved from the toilet to the sink. As any red-blooded Bee would, I started wondering if he was talking to Friend about his connection at the supplier since he knew what style I liked and what size I need. You know how guys can be – always wanting to improve on something that’s already awesome.
Fast forward to last week. I found out that SO decided to take this Friday off for no “real” reason. He works today, has classes Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and said he just didn’t think he’d want to go back to the office on Friday. Not totally abnormal – but he didn’t tell me he was taking the day off. I found out in a round-about way which was weird for me. He’s usually very excited about his days off – very, “I’m going to sit around the house and do absolutely nothing.” I even said something about being jealous about him being off on Friday and received no response. It would typically be something like, “It’s going to be a whole day of awesome nothingness…” I got no response – zip, zero, nothing.
Welllllll, on Friday night I found out – again, by accident – that Friend (from 3 paragraphs up) *also* has Friday off. (It’s based on the way they work – 10 days on, 4 days off.) So, SO just arbitrarily decided to take the Friday a week before my Birthday off – which ALSO happens to be the same day that Friend has off? Am I reading into this too much? Or could a Birthday proposal be in the works?
*cue Dramatic Gopher music* Dun dun DUN!
