Blogging, I’ve decided, is a single girl’s game. Now that I’m not-exactly-single, these daily posts are starting to feel like a chore, and stuff keeps happening before I get a chance to write about it happening.
Did you know, for example, that The Wedding Date and I went out for sushi on Friday night? Or that at my parents’ New Year Eve party earlier this month one of their friends cornered him behind the martini bar and proceeded to demand, in Spanish, “Are you in love with her? Is she the one? Do you think you are going to marry her?”
(I know this only because The Wedding Date relayed the entire conversation to me in English a few minutes later.)
(And yes, he also translated his response but that’s going to require an entire blog post of its own.)
Did I tell you what he got me for Christmas?
That it was the sweetest thing anyone has gotten me for Christmas in ages?
Did I mention that I’ve started watching Star Wars? (And that I actually kind of enjoyed it, despite the fact that my falling asleep in The Wedding Date’s arms just as Hans Solo shot that Greedo guy would suggest otherwise?)
How about the fact that a film crew from ABC’s Good Morning America is coming to our house tomorrow to interview me for a segment on “Single Bridezillas?”
(No joke. One of their producers read the article in Marie Claire. And asked if she could interview both my mother and The Wedding Date too about my planning-my-wedding-before-I’ve-got-a-groom tendencies.)
Finally, did I tell you about the question The Wedding Date asked me in Boston?
More importantly, did I tell you of my response?
Well, like I said: blogging is a single girl’s game. But I promise to do better this week. So stay tuned.
And on that note, it’s time for me to go finish ironing my grandmother’s wedding dress.
