You should get married and have babies. [Jul. 21st, 2009|02:47 pm]
[Current Mood |confusedconfused]

Seriously, this is what one of Craig's relatives told me upon us first meeting.

In retrospect I wish I would have said either:

a) Why? Are you hungry? I never did much like the name "Hansel" anyways.
b) I would, but it's too late. The Hispanics already won.
c) Was there a population shortage I wasn't aware of?
d) No thanks, I've been to college.
e) For some reason, seeing that look in your eyes reminds me to take my birth control. I've noticed that women who are pro-breeding tend to look worn out with a few untended to illegitimate children. How man bas$tards are you flaunting?

Instead I just looked on in shock and said, "Umm. Craig and I aren't engaged."

I think the answer you gave was the best one ;)

In retrospect, most likely it was. It was strange to say upon first meeting me.

I also could have said, "Socially inappropriate much?" and walked out of the room.

If I'd only had some plastic gloves I could have said, "Well, I could be now! Want to give me a pap while I'm here?"

*giggles* I don't mind at all. It shocks me that total strangers think this is just fine to say to a new girlfriend they just met who has no ring on her all important finger.

How about "I thank you for the proposal but I'm already very interested in Craig."

Or, for a female "I thank you for the proposal but I don't think thats anatomically possible."

Also, I've actually said, "I am very flattered about your desire to have me as part of the family." When pressed, I'll say that I'm sure that X and I (David for me, Craig for you) will work it out at our own pace and keep them appraised of any changes.

That is a riot. I should have told her, "Wow, how flattering. I'm very committed to Craig already though, so I don't think we'd work out since I don't swing that way."
