I have an overwhelming desire to get married and start a family–a desire I attribute almost fully to the sappy book I just finished.
I had a dream last night that I was eating with my parents and some friends. I hadn’t seen them in a while and so everyone kept asking me, “So what’s new with you?” I kept shrugging and saying, “Nothing really.” (Which is identical to my real life answer.) But then some time later I stopped and thought, wait…I do have news. I said to everyone, “Oh wait, I just thought of some news: I’m engaged.” All I can remember is shocked silence, because no one had been aware that I was even dating someone.
I don’t know which is funnier–the fact that I didn’t feel my being engaged was of note or that I kept the relationship a secret for so long that no one knew about it until I announced I was marrying the guy. Surprise!
