That is all.
The new girl in my office came back from her day off with the most perfect, biggest version of my dream ring imaginable. And while everyone oohs and ahs over it (well deserved, it’s breathtaking!) I feel the jealousy bee rearing her head. I’ve been with my SO for twice as long as her. And her Fiance is unemployed, so I don’t even really understand how it’s feasible that she have that iceberg on her hand right now.
I’m happy for her I really am. I just might be a little happier if she had a different ring, but still. Or if I felt like I knew it was coming soon for me. Sigh. Does anybody else have the waiting blues or feel like a jealousy bee on this lovely Friday? Love you, bees. Thanks for listening!

Of course we all get a bit jealous at times. I am 23 and have two secretary’s…they are younger than me and are both engaged. -__-

i can imagine that being a teeth grinding moment. but the worse thing you can do is compare. easier said than done i know. i have my moments, well ive had plenty. just recently my cousin got engaged after 15 months of dating.
im happy for her she deserves it, but what really made me see red and a little bit of green is her saying ‘he finally asked me” seriously FINALLY? youre not even close to the 2 year mark. poor choice of words. not to mention she knows ive been with my S0 for 5 yrs and impatiently waiting. sigh* it is what is.
keep your eye on the prize aka the ring. your time will come.. hopefully soon for us both.

Oh dear, it’s just not going well for you is it? It can be so hard to be happy for others, especially when you feel like it’s your turn…so why not amuse yourself?
If it were me, I would tell myself that the secretary in your office isn’t who she seems, her and her Fiance are actually international jewel theives, and this recent “engagement” is actually an elaborate and convenient scheme for their latest heist…that ring on her finger is wanted in Moscow, she stole it from the Czar! And any minute now agents from the Kremmlin are going to infiltrate your office building and extradite her back to her home country where a cold room without heat and lousy borshce await her for a tortuous interrogation by some tall slender man with a scar over one eye…..
See…? I totally forgot about what’s her face and whoever the hell she’s marrying, THAT story is way more interesting, isn’t it? Mr. 99 refers to this as Nona’s Internal Entertainment Device…going to the DMV is a blast for someone like me.
If you just can’t deal with the truth, and I don’t think anyone can blame you here, create an alternate reality, it’s not like it will hurt anyone, besides, if you don’t use your imagination, you loose it, seems like a golden opportunity to me!
