God help me

Not sure if ya’ll remember, but my high school frenemy and current soccer teammate – Heather – broke up with her boyfriend 3 or 4 times this year.

And, since they live together, breaking up means moving out of their house. 3 or 4 times.

I emailed her earlier this week, telling her that I couldn’t go to her stupidfuck jewelry party because I had an appointment to try on bridesmaid dresses.

She asked me who I was in a wedding for. Which, in itself, was a long story. I gave it to her in abbreviated fashion, finishing it up with “I think it must be because she heard that I’m an awesome bridesmaid!”

Heather emails me back.

If you are such a good bridesmaid... maybe I will have to keep you in mind. Dave and I have actually been discussing getting married... just waiting for the actual proposal. I already started planning... thinking about June 6th...

I am shocked.

But I respond.

Not June 6th! That's the day of the other wedding I'm in!

Also - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! SO EXCITING!

She writes back:

GRRRRR... This is making me SO mad... another friend who I wanted to be in it is going to be 8 months pregnant. I like the date.. remember I am a math person. 6/6. I originally wanted April 4th... 4/4 but I think it is too soon and then I cant have the ceremony in the park I want to have it at. Well I guess I might have to find another date if already you cant come, and two of my friends will either be 8 or 9 months pregnant.

What the fuck do you want me to do? I committed 6 months ago. AND YOU’RE NOT EVEN ENGAGED YET.

I keep up a nice front and emailed back and forth with her a few more times.

And then we get to the crowing moment.

I got the dress for $43 on ebay. It was a model in a dress store. It is pretty :)

Holy crap.
She bought the dress on ebay.

What a fucking loon!!!

The good thing is that, knowing people like this is a good way to remind yourself how very normal you are!

You manage to know crazy ppl! I agree with Accidentally Me. No proposal but yet already bought the dress. I can see this going horribly wrong.

Some people just want to be married, no matter what, no matter to who.

Wow ... that's amazing.

Also, June 6 was my parents' anniversary. That date did NOT work out well for them. lol
