Tonight I learned of another couple engaged to be married.
So... Nine, I guess.
Thankfully, I've been doing a pretty good job keeping to myself this year and staying out of the social scene. This means I don't have to attend all of these weddings and bridal showers. Can you imagine if I had to buy a gift for each couple for the wedding AND for the bridal shower? Can you? I hope you are doing the math, because that would be ridiculous. Ridiculously expensive.
I have a long discourse about wedding presents and the showers and registries and the what-nots that are involved in the getting married process but it isn't quite at the point of publication yet. It involves largely my financial role in the lives of people I'm just "what ev" about, the idiocy of certain techniques some couples take on in the registering process, and how when it's my turn to be married, all of these people are going to be long gone.
