"it ain't for everybody"

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

one should not propose to me without knowing:

1. you're getting an engagement ring, too. i am not walking around with a 'sold' sign or a training-ring while you are "[finger]-loose and fancy-free". so guess where we are going in the morning? Zales or Kay.

2. if i decide i'm going to have your child, the nursery will be a shade of yellow clearly picked out for you and the decor will have teddy bears. this is not up for discussion. i will go away for a weekend and you shall have that done. you may attempt it yourself, knowing i will have you do it over if it is not right, or you can break down and hire a professional. the choice is yours. 

3. i will not cook for you every night. some nights, it will be "your turn".

4. if you snore, you are getting your own room!

5. i do not care what team you are a fan of, there will be a room in the house dedicated entirely to the dallas cowboys. have you seen that Eastbay/NFL magazine page??? something similar to THAT! (this will probably only be a serious problem for you if you are an eagles or redskins fan, in which case, we wouldn't be getting married anyway).

this is just what i have thought about so far because i really haven't given it much thought. i still have little to no interest in nuptuals however, i am constantly made aware of the inevitability that "someone" is going to propose to me. as to why he would do that when he can almost be certain i will say 'no' is beyond me. but just in case one day i am in one of my passing moods and want to get married and he (or whomever i'm seeing at the time if it's not him) should so happen to ask, he should know...

I love #1. I was just talking to someone about this. If you can't commit 3 months salary to a ring to show that we're going to be getting married in the near future, what in heaven's name makes you think I can commit the ENTIRE rest of my life to you.

People are so silly sometimes.

good stuff.

i, for one, think you make some very reasonable and 'need-to-be-said' points. i don't see why any man shouldn't be able to accomodate your wishes, especially the cooking. personally, i like to cook for a woman.

there's just something thats very caring and nurturing about it, imo.

# 3 is the truth...or at least it is in my house. sorry hubs...you should have that taken care of...again :-(

I'm with you with the snoring!!! If my husband snored, we wouldn't be together today!! That's something that I just can't tolerate!!

Girl, thats the truth. That number one is way up there. I gave my fiance one. How fair is it that they don't get to be "claimed"? Hell they're the ones who need a symbol of taken-ness more than us!

#1,2,and 3 are real good with me. I am all about the shared cooking duty, Im not married or engaged but you know that it's a must, a requirement. Must know way around the kitchen. :)
