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!
