last night, i watched “say yes to the dress” in front of him for the first time. he was on his computer, so not really paying much attention, but every once and a while he would make comments about the girls, the dresses, etc. once he heard the price on one of them, he was speechless (with fear i bet haha). i told him i don’t understand how these girls could spend so much on a dress (not knocking those of you who do!) and that i was probably going to be making my own dress, since i am picky and it will be less expensive.
he said “i FULLY support that!” (in a relieved way) and “you do that and you you’ll get an expensiver ring”. after he made fun of himself for having used the word “expensiver”, I chimed in to let him know he could “give me a twist tie with a piece of glitter glued to it, and i would be happy”. he replied “oh, come on, nobody’s THAT cheap”. i explained that i meant expense should really not be a priority.
after a few more little jokes, the topic changed, but i felt like we had a fun, open conversation. now all i need to do is keep quiet with the engagement talk for a while. my goal is until we move in together at the end of june… if i make that i’ll try to keep quiet until i leave for ireland 2 weeks later 🙂
i feel like following mr bee’s plan works to a certain extent, but you shouldn’t supress any natural conversations that may occur. granted, i may have initiated that a bit by watching SYTTD, but i had assumed he wouldn’t make any comments about the show and he would sit quietly at his computer.
