(Not) Engaged

I saw this ecard on Pinterest today and it reminded me of a conversation I had with a good friend over the weekend. This is NOT about you. You're extremely attractive. This is about other people.



Friend: Remember that super awkward guy who came to visit me for the weekend and left the "size" sticker on the side of his jeans the whole time? He's engaged.

Me: What!?!?

Friend: And that giantess from work? The one with the horrible personality? I overheard her mention a husband the other day.

Me: Oh brother. Well, they're probably married to weirdos... That's what we have to tell ourselves anyway so we're not so sad when we die alone. (pause) Sorry, I shouldn't joke about that. We're not going to die alone.

Friend: But we probably are.

Me: Yeah, most likely.
 
This conversation was followed by laughter, so don't feel too bad for us. You have to either laugh or cry right? Laughing is usually the better option.

Speaking from experience....
There is always hope .... just enjoy life now and get lots of fun and rest now... because living single is not nearly as exhausting as married life. Just enjoy life today!!! :)

p.s. raccoons can be carniverous and people keep them as pets

p.s.s. get a online dating account! They work!!

I think it's easier to have perspective on single life when you're married and not worried about it anymore. ;)

But don't worry, we have plenty of fun and enjoy our lives!

Thanks for the tips about the raccoons! haha

Chris mentioned that dogs and cats are carnivores. I'm here to remind you that people are too! Yikes!!! :)

Haha, yes, someone commented earlier and said i won't be alone because my cat will be with me and eat me when i die. i deleted it because of the yuck factor but now i wish i'd left it up. haha

(ps, i don't have a cat)

Haha Totally reminds me of a guy form my BYU ward. We wondered if he would ever get married because he was such a quirky personality. He found the perfect "weirdo" for him and got married the same weekend I did. Meeting his future wife convinced me that there is someone just right for everyone out there. Here's hoping you find your perfect "weirdo" sooner rather than later. :)

I think weird people have beacons that attract other weird people to them. I feel sorry for their children.
