So my SO’s old roommates came to visit us this past weekend. My SO has been close with them since college, it’s a couple. They got engaged last year.
Friday night, my SO and his friend were looking something up for our city adventure we were having yesterday. Her Fiance and I were watching tv. So she’s helping my SO figure things out. I have a journal, a novel, and some tv show book I got for Christmas on my desk. Out of the corner of my eye, I see her point to one, and ask him “when’s this happening?” sounding excited, almost giddy. I should mention that on the novel, an engagement ring takes the place of an ‘O’ in the title. He smiles and says “Oh, I think the show comes back on next month.” She laughes, hits him, and says “No, THIS one!” and points again. He, still smiling, says “I don’t know, when’s yours happening?” [I’m assuming he meant their wedding].
It was the smallest thing… but I seriously love when his friends make comments like that. I almost feel a sense of validation, like ‘See! it’s not just MY friends making comments because they know I’m wanting to get engaged. YOUR friends want you to get on it, too!’ haha 😛
I just smiled to myself after I heard that little conversation. Because I knew EXACTLY which book she was referring to. Thank you, friend.
This last part’s kinda off topic, but it was funny so I’m sharing. Last night when we were out and about in the city, we walked by this super skankishly dressed mannequin, no shirt but some little things covering the nipples. I pointed it out to my SO. He laughed and made a comment about how he thought I enjoyed looking at it, I was like um no, but I thought you would haha. Then, randomly, he just throws it out there, totally serious, that when we have kids and I’m taking them to see some kids show downtown, I’m going to have to be prepared to answer their questions walking by something like that, “Mommy, what’s that?”. I cracked right up. I love when he talks about us having kids. 🙂
But back on topic.
How do you guys feel when your SO’s friends make comments?
