Saturday was SORSO’s (Son Of Ralph’s Significant Other) birthday. Below is a picture taken on the big day. Two things should be obvious.
First, SOR (Son of Ralph) is either down on his knee OR he is a midget. Secondly, they are both staring at her hand.

Yes, that’s right SOR and SORSO were engaged on Saturday! SOR called me before the big event and the conversation went something like this.

SOR: Well, I have talked to her brother and to her Dad and they like the idea. Do you want to try to talk me out of this?
ME: (My first thought was - now why would I try to talk you out of a good thing? But, I went with the more traditional answer.) I’ve quit trying to talk you into or out of anything.

We both laughed. SOR’s laugh was a little more nervous than mine.

Later that night I got a text message from SOR. It read, “Done deal we are engaged.”

So, that’s when all the anxiety kicked in. Plans had to be made – not my problem. Dates have to be set – not my problem. People have to notified – not my problem. Names have to be changed – that’s my problem.

Hear ye, Hear ye – as of today until it changes SORSO (Son of Ralph’s Significant Other) will be known as FON (Fiancée of Nathan). This decree will remain in affect until it changes - again.

Congratulations to both of you!

A big atta boy to sor. This is great news and can I assume they'll be getting married her at blogstock??
At any rate I'll start saving money for the wedding.

Oh now I get it!!! You nervously paced around all day yesterday NOT because two people we really love were going to get engaged, but because you had to come up with a name! How silly of me not to figure it out earlier.

Ralph, I think you've worked for the government too long!
Anyway, I'm confused. Maybe a real name or two (Nathan is one??) would help me.

Well it would not be me if I did not crack a joke or two. This was a birthday I will never forget. I day that we all will share for a life time to come. I could not be more honored ,the post is wonderful. It is a great feeling to be able to share this moment with you all.
