UH, NO

An acquaintance (a 2L) at the law school recently got engaged, and when I congratulated her, she asked me when my wedding would be.

UH, WHAT WEDDING????

She said that she'd been under the impression that I had been engaged for a while now.

UH, TO WHOM????

I find this both tragically ironic and ridiculously funny.

Why?

First, because I'm the furthest thing from engaged as is humanly possible. Second, because I'm the furthest thing from engaged as is humanly possible.

Does "perpetual spinster indulging in unrequited crushes" mean anything to you?

Great story. And that phrase means sooooo much to me, unfortunately.

I don't know if I believe what she said about assuming you were engaged. Who ASSUMES something like that? Do you wear a ring or something? It's not quite the same (though equally as embarrassing I guess) as assuming someone is pregnant, cuz at least then you think you have occular proof.

On another note: Spinster? You're not being fair to yourself. I mean you don't have cats, right?

Oh, Gawd, please tell me you don't have cats!

No ring.

And nope, no cat...yet.

You remind me of the character Remedios the Beauty from One Hundred Years of Solitude. She was so beautiful that numerous men died pursuing her, but was so innocent that she didn't know why men wanted her.

I'd marry you.
