That dang ol' Linda is always getting me in trouble one way or another. I know she often tries to tell folks that it's the other way around but let me tell you....IT'S NOT!
Yesterday morning I thought about this tradition and really got to thinking about that new dress I could score by a man turning me down, even going as far as finding one I liked! I quickly grabbed my cell phone and called my friend, he didn't answer but I left him a message..."Hey, Happy Leap Day! Will you marry me? I will need the answer before midnight". I waited patiently *okie is never patient about anything but thinks it sound better than waiting anxiously* to hear from him and during this time thinking of places I might be able to go shopping and find a red silk dress, red because it's my favorite color and silk because we all know I am a true traditionalist *okie wonders if she should get a lightening rod*. The day dragged on into the afternoon and I never got a phone call. I knew it was time for him to go to work and I still hadn't heard from him so I just knew I wouldn't get an answer and I would take that as a refusal and get my silk dress and be looking smashing for formal night on the cruise!
Lo and behold, I did end up talking to him during the evening. He didn't mention a thing about my voicemail and I thought "I got him now! He has to buy me a dress!". I casually said "oh by the way, did you get my voicemail from earlier today?". He looked at me and smiled and said "yes I did". I told him "well I need an answer! If you refuse then you have to buy me a new red silk dress!". He laughed and said "oh I got an answer for you" and then he walked off. Well that was completely cheating as far as I was concerned. By giving the notion that he had an answer was not fulfilling the obligation of giving an answer! Later when I spoke to him I said "I need an answer, a simple yes, no or maybe will suffice". He looked down at me and smiled and simply said "YES". I looked up at him and told him "you just don't want to buy me a new red silk dress!". I mean what the hell! I need a new dress and he is jacking with me by saying yes when he knows he has no intention of marrying me but just doesn't want to buy me a red silk dress!
Now why do I blame Linda? Because it seems like the thing to do and I need someone to blame for my dilemma...I won't have a new silk dress for formal night for the
cruise and I am stuck with a fiancee who has no intentions of really
marrying me. I tell ya, that dang ol Linda is always getting me in trouble!
OMGOSH!!! LOL You silly ole' Goose! HAHAHHA I can't stop laughing! I guess.... "CONGRATS" are in order!!! We can start creating the decorations for your wedding with our Cricuts! Everyone can help... It will be a wonderful Wedding! teheheheheReplyDelete
Oooooh! Have you picked your colors? Set the date? Decided on where the honeymoon will be?ReplyDelete
ROFLMAO! I think the red silk dress would have been better than the "yes"!
And, blame me if you want, I was merely passing on some of the knowledge I've accumulated over the years---and you know I have a LOT of those!
OMG, I hear the wedding bells ringing...I am willing to help with decorations, I have the wedding cart! Now, I don't want to be in your wedding party, because I'm a cheap azz, but I would love an invite to the party!!!ReplyDelete
Now everyone is gonna want to come! He should still buy you the red dress, just tell him that it will be your wedding dress!!! You need to get it now so that you can wear it on the cruise, and then it can be your something old at the wedding! See multi-purpose dress! Then later on, but before the wedding you can call it off and tell him you will ask again next Leap Day! Cheryl laughs hysterically at her ability to solve all of Okies problems!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see the ring! Be sure to tell him it would have been cheaper for him to buy you that dress after all!! I'm thinking a bridal shower aboard the Cricut Cruise is in order...ReplyDelete
I'm cracking up laughing. I want that red silk dress dress for an event in two weeks. I have no idea what I'm wearing on the cruise!
Never heard that old wives tale. But you sure fell into it. Now let's see you get out of it. Not unless you really want to get married. Either way I think this is cute and glad you decided to share with us.ReplyDelete
You know he could be very serious. Like the others said we could all chip in and do all the cricut cuts for a really great wedding. Hey this could even be a group tutotorial.ReplyDelete
I think Lucy will be an adorable bridesmaid! If you need a schnoodle pal to escort her, let me know.ReplyDelete
Ok, did you check his fingers when he answered YES? I mean, maybe he had his fingers crossed, which means NO and this way he owes you dress...right? Here is wishing he was crossing his fingers and you get your new sexy red satin dress.ReplyDelete
Ok, did you happen to see if his hingers were crossed when he said YES. If he had his fingers crossed, that really meant NO and you can get that new, sexy, satin, red dress. Here's hoping you get your new dress.ReplyDelete
Okie, Ever heard of the old sayingReplyDelete
"Be careful what you ask for....because you just might get it"
Congrats!!! Unless you really don't want to marry him, then.....ROTFLOL!!!
Hahaha Congrats on your engagement! Sorry it didn't work out on getting the red silk dress. I think the one you picked out is really pretty....maybe you could start a petition that for it to be a real "yes" he has to give you a ring....you might get that dress after all...especially if you pick out a really expensive ring.ReplyDelete
Oh No there better be another post for the rest of THIS story!ReplyDelete
Never fear Shirley ... You shall have that dress. Just tell him that now he needs to buy you a new red silk wedding dress because ... uhhhh, well, because you just AREN'T a traditionalist!!!ReplyDelete
