For most of this week, I've been having a similar conversation with my coworkers and friends and so has the BF.
Coworker: Are you excited for vacation?
Me: Wondering how I couldn't be anything BUT excited, "Of course I'm excited."
Coworker: Do you think you will get engaged?
Friend: "I bet you are so excited for vacation this week."
Me: "Of course. How couldn't I be?"
Friend: "Do you think the BF will propose?"
Manicurist: "Do you have any plans this weekend?"
Me: "Yes, I'm actually leaving for Mexico this weekend. I'm taking a whole week off with my boyfriend and another couple."
Manicurist: "Well, that will be fun."
Me: "I'm really looking forward to it."
Manicurist: "How long have you been with that boyfriend of yours?"
Me: "Four years."
Manicurist: "I wonder if he will propose....."
Me: Smile and shrug because I'm not about to get into my explanation with the nice manicurist.
Manicurist: "Well, do you?"
BF: In the kitchen earlier this week, "People at work have asked me if I'm proposing to you in Mexico."
Me: "Yeah, I've been getting the same stuff."
Do you see a pattern developing?
I'm not quite sure what a week in Mexico says about getting engaged but everyone seems to have it on their minds. Everyone. Except my mom. She hasn't said anything about it.
Here's to sun, relaxation and alcoholic drinks with little umbrellas by the pool. For seven whole days.
