Rashan added me as his girlfriend on fb last week and I know it's weird but I felt mad naked as soon as it happened! There are pics of us all over, I talk about him all the time, and yet with that relationship status on fb, I was freaked out! I've gotten over it, though. Funniest? The wording of the email fb sent me to confirm, "Rashan said on Facebook that you two are in a relationship. We need you to confirm that you are, in fact, in a relationship with Rashan." Who wrote that first sentence? Are they out of elementary school? Because that was written like a tattling 5th grader. And the second sentence is almost like a lawyer wrote it. If so, why didn't he/she proof read the first part? Side eye, fb. Side eye.
I don't appreciate my mom's friend who said, "Ooh! New relationship! Congrats! Details! :)" I said, "Thanks. We've been together about 15 months." (Which all of my closest friends, not close friends, people I've met a couple of times, former coworkers, classmates, parents, close and kind of close relatives, bloggers and lurkers and his bloggers and lurkers know... i.e. 100s of people....) She said, "Well make sure you keep me posted so I have plenty of time to buy a dress! ;-)" Face. Are you serious? I haven't spoken to you in more than 20 YEARS. And neither has my mom!!! I didn't want to add you on facebook but you requested me until I said yes. At least 3xs. I have this thing about strangers "friending" me. I don't like it. I know bloggers who post once a week better than I know you. And you're old. Old people on fb creep me out... including my mother... who does not text or have the internet at home but now wants to join twitter. STOP WATCHING OPRAH RIGHT NOW, MOM!!
When I get married to whoever I get married to, it will be relatively small. I have plenty of cousins I don't know like that who won't be getting invited. (Remember I have at least 36 first cousins.) I.e. I know we're cousins but 1) what's your last name? 2) what's your first name? 3) I wouldn't recognize you on the street. I don't want to be surrounded by strangers on that day. Fall back. My mom was surprised by my reaction and said, "She's known you since you were a little girl! I don't think it's unreasonable that she would think she'd be invited to your wedding." Um... yeah... but again... 20 years??? Get your life together. Okay maybe that last line was harsh but come on. I will have a destination wedding just to discourage people like you. Hmmm... methinks that probably wasn't less harsh... What is wrong with people? Here is where I welcome your input. Not what I'd say to her because she's getting ignored but go crazy with what YOU would say to her. Also give some actual crazy "I can't believe you didn't invite me to your wedding!" story or an example of someone who would say that to you and get the ug mug. Have fun!
