I'm Not Engaged

Y'all kill me. 

Not bloggers... today...  No, today it's my family and friends.  I called a friend while driving to Atlanta the other day and she says, "Hey! What's up?!"  I say, "Not much, what's up with you?"  It had been quite a while.  She's married, pregnant and a mommy.  I don't call her much because I figure she's busy.  She doesn't call me... I guess because she is.  Anyway, she goes, "Oh.  I thought you were engaged."  Uhhh...

Then the other day I'm talking to my mom.  I say something that's a trigger and she says breathlessly, "Are you engaged?"  Really mom?  I say, "Are you serious with that? I promise I'll lead with that. 38 minutes into the conversation and I'll casually hint to the fact that my life is about to change forever? Not gonna happen. Wrong child."  NUT.

Less than 48 hours after that, fave roomie calls and says, "I have to be in your wedding. I don't care if I'm holding your train. I have to be in your wedding."  Can I get engaged before you make demands, please?  This is only slightly better than the woman who knew me 20 years ago telling me to give her plenty of time to buy a dress for my wedding...  How about all of you stop making demands on an event that is still a figment of everyone's imagination?  GRACIAS!!! XOXOXO!!!

As soon as you get engaged, they'll all immediately switch to assuming/hinting at/nagging you to be pregnant. You just can't win.

Go on, spill the beans. We're waiting. And we want a play by play of the proposal and pics of the ring, too.

In a few years you'll have to write a post "I'm not Pregnant." Mark my words - the fun never stops!
