- Wedding: May 2014
So I’ve been getting the feeling lately that maybe a proposal will be coming soonish, although I have no idea. You can see some of my other past posts on the subject for background…..
My birthday is Jan 22 and SO texts me this:
Hey, is there anything you want for your birthday specifically?
Now, normally this question is reasonable, and wouldn’t strike excitement, fear and panic in the heart of the recipient. But for a waiting Bee, it’s a loaded question.
So, trying to calm down and answer like a normal person, I say:
Ok, so far so good.
Then I say:
No, not anything specific I can think of
Ok, played it cool as a cucumber…..good job! Shut It Up and all that.
Surprise me :o)
If I think of anything, I’ll let you know!
Wow, I’m so chill my body should be subzero right now! So cool!
Really, I’m shocked you can’t think of anything! Lol.
Oh silly SO, don’t make me say it. I’m trying really hard to be good. Come on.
Turn it back on him, nice!
Don’t know, just thought you would have some ideas
Yeah, one BIG idea, one I’m reeeeally trying hard not to say right now!
I guess I kind of ran out of ideas with Xmas lol …. I still like the combine bday, anniversary and vday idea haha ;o)
Uh-oh, I’m toeing the line here. Stop it MsYankee, stop it!
So to cover my tracks, let’s make a joke:
(I sent him a link to Christian Louboutin’s website)
There, happy? Hehehe :o)
j/k you know!
You know that’s not fair it’s a loaded question for me … ;o)
What do you mean by that?
CHANGE THE SUBJECT!
I really am present-ed out. Maybe more of an experience, think night away or nice dinner and event or something…see a show, spa day, something like that?
Ok, ok, backtracked. Maybe I saved it.
Ok maybe I’ll do one of those.
Ok and then after that nice evening PROPOSE!!!!
There’s one thing I want that I can’t say lol you already know and I’m zipping it. I’ve already said too much haha :o)
Oh, yeah, real smooth, psycho. Geez, now I blew this whole thing.
I know that but I don’t have enough money yet, soon enough
How soon? Soon enough? Why don’t you have enough money? I’ve told you not to spend too much, are you going to spend too much?? Are you going to get me a moissy or a diamond? I’d be ok with either but I think Moissy’s are so pretty, they’re less expensive too, I just want to start the next phase and be married to you and have babies and grow old …….
I have no idea what you’re talking about :o)
Anyway, experience > physical present
And that, my fellow Bees, is what waiting anxiety does to a perfectly normal girl :o)
