So, my SO and I set a dollar limit on presents for each other, and I know he already had reached that limit (he told me he had). We finished shopping yesterday and I wrapped those few last presents and when I said I was finished SO says ‘finally, no more shopping or wrapping!’.
Then, last night he asks me if we had more wrapping paper. I asked why, as we were all fnished. Then he says I have one more present that I want to give to you. Now, as you may or may not know, my SO has my engagement ring and is just waiting to propose (he doesn’t know that I know). So I then say ‘why, are you wrapping my ring?’.
FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.
He then looks at me like with this ‘how do you know kinda face’ and says ‘ummm, no. what’re you talking about?’ So then I had to make up some silly comment saying ‘a girl can dream right?’ so that he didn’t know that I know about the ring.
Me and my big mouth LOL.

Lol, whoops. Foot, meet mouth. It’ll be okay. I mean, he assumes you are at least on the same page as he is about marriage or he wouldn’t have gotten it, so it’s not that odd. Hopefully he bought it!
I can imagine his poor shocked face though.

lol – he should play poker more. Don’t hate me for saying this, but do you think he might change when he gives it to “throw you off”? According to Mr. Bee and Mr. Tattoo, the proposal is a big deal to the guy to make sure it’s a surprise and special, and if he thinks you knowing about it ruins his plans, he “might” wait for NYE or a few days after Christmas – just so you’re prepared to keep YOUR poker face up.

LOL! Well, it was just a slip of your subconcious!

The hardest thing about the Christmas Challenge is the jabs. I can (kinda) avoid the serious conversations. But since I have a sarcastic wit, it is hard not to make the sarcastic jabs when the opportunities present themselves.
Example: Some friends, my SO, and I all went camping for Halloween. It’s dark. We’re telling ghost stories by the fire, etc. So my SO chimes in proudly: “I’m not afraid of anything!” And I can’t help but respond: “Marriage!”
For that matter, I find myself repeatedly flicking my SO off with my ring finger lately…..inspired by that “She’s tired of waiting” billboard. ….I just can’t help it…
