This evening I went to dinner with Kevin by the lake to relax, drink margaritas, and listen to live music; all to mainly get out of the house. As much as I love my mother I cannot let one more conversation float upward into abstruction and absurdity any longer. Most of you may know from reading my previous blogs my older brother is soon getting married, and by soon I mean next weekend. This is the first time I’ve actually been a part of the wedding, and by that I mean included in the wedding planning process. Initially this is an exciting concept, however, I now tenaciously object to any conversation that includes ‘wedding.’
Recently I have found a new way to avoid any conversation I’m apathetic to, which consequently now happens with everybody I talk to.
Yes, it’s the 2 in 1 conversation. 🙂
The way it works is when somebody is talking to me about a subject, i.e. weddings, I will reply with something that has nothing to do with a conversation.
Mom: I’m trying to get guest list together with who’s going to stay the night for friday and saturday, do you think Josh’s is mother-in-law parents will stay the night? | Me: I still have not gotten those brown wedges for my sorority. | Mom: Yeah, they probably will stay both nights.
Do you see what just happened there? Sure I seem pompous but you have to remember that I want to pull my hair out from talking about my brother’s wedding all summer long. It’s selfish really, that he wants to get married at the end of the summer anyway.
Because of this I go to dinner with Kevin and sub-consciously I bring up the freaking wedding! But it’s okay because his response is: Yeah my new headphones are sweet. | Me: I mean all my mom says is blah blah blah wedding this wedding that. | Kevin: I had to get up an hour early to ship out my old headphones so that I can get my new ones. These new ones, yep they are wireless. So awesome.
Do you see what just happened there? ** sigh** What? I am my mother’s daughter. What do you want from me?
7 days and counting.
