My sister has been dating a guy now for about 6 months...it's gotten pretty serious, to the point where she called me up one day last week and asked if she and Boyfriend could "borrow" my house for an "Open House" in October.
"What? That's kinda' weird..." I said. "You don't normally have an open house at someone else's house...unless...wait a minute....are you having a wedding reception??!" I squealed with hopeful glee.
"Possibly," she said. "We should be getting married sometime around then."
Woot! Of course, I agreed and then that night, I repeated the conversation to Hubby.
Now - what I didn't know then is that Boyfriend has not officially proposed to Sister yet. Nope. They've "talked" about getting married - but there's nothing official yet. Sister was just jumping the gun a little bit - and hoping that Boyfriend will propose any day now so she can "officially" begin planning the wedding.
So, imagine the scene at my house on Easter Sunday when Hubby walked up to Boyfriend, shook his hand, and said, boomingly, "Congratulations! I heard the good news! Welcome to the family!"
Boyfriend looked at Hubby with a very weird look on his face...Hubby then looked at me with a very weird look on his face. I then turned and looked at Sister with a very weird look on my face.
Sister says, "Uhhh.....awkward."
Yeah. Ya' think?!
