We went to dinner with his mom and sister. His mom decides to ask when the wedding is, how we need to get married, it’s a great thing, blahblahblahblahblah, what kind of ring do I want, and so on. Surprisingly they didn’t harass me about why I wasn’t harassing him… this time.
THEN his mom/sister go on to plan the wedding, all with things that I think are boring, old, and not going to happen at my wedding. So then they ask why I’m not putting any input, and I tell them that “well, you seem to be so into it, I figure I’ll sit at home and have my wedding the way I want, and I guess you will have Boyfriend or Best Friend with you at this wedding you’re planning, since it seems you’re planning for him and not me… I mean, if you’re going to do all of this planning and insisting for us, I hope you’re going to pay for it if you expect me to show up”
Of course, I start to talk about what I’d like, and I’m told that wanting fried oreos and a gaming room is “trashy”. I was oh so very tempted to say “well then you can go to your wedding that you’ve planned, and I will have mine, with fried oreos and a gaming room!”. I know who I’m not going to for planning help…
They left to have a smoke, and I said to Boyfriend or Best Friend “if they plan it, I won’t show up, I know they’d pick out some dress that is HIDEOUS!” At least Boyfriend or Best Friend agrees that fried oreos and a gaming room sounds awesome, his mom/sister’s ideas sound not-us and boring, and if they want that kind of wedding, sister can have it.
Boyfriend or Best Friend later tells me that he has no idea what his plan is (though he spoke in terms that implied “soon” with his mom/sister), and perhaps he would just use a ring pop. I told him it would have to be the right flavor, or I would turn him down.
The next day, his mom has changed her stance on marriage being wonderful to not knowing why anyone in their right mind would do it, and his sister has decided that fried oreos, once trashy, are now really good.
