Back at work today after the unexpected weekend I learned that the announcing part is stranger than I had thought – maybe because I hadn’t ever thought about it.
I told Laura. She was really happy. She said it was because we hung out with her and Kirk on Friday night and witnessed how happy they are married.
When Kathy came back from the field, I told her. She instantly offered to help with anything she could – from ideas to helping me find a dress to whatever. She was really excited.
This is kinda fun.
On the way home I called Nancy. To put this in phone call into perspective, you need to know that Nancy and I talk all the time – over AIM and text messages and email. But we use actual phones for communication maybe once or twice a year, if that. So I called Nancy. It was important for me to hear her reaction and I also thought it would be cheesy to ask her to be my Maid of Honor via something that looked like this:
secretly skurtz (8:37:34 PM): will U B my MOH???!!?!?!?!!?!!!?!?!?!?!!1111
And in following Jason’s lead of not actually “asking,” I just kinda told her I always thought she would be the one standing next to me in that situation, so I hoped she didn’t have other plans. What a sentimentalist.
