“Kristen, you’d make a fun wife.” This is what my colleague, Marley, said to me yesterday completely out of the blue. I believe that Selena and I were talking about boys and getting older (she’s turning 29 next week) and Marley overheard us. I still don’t know what prompted her to say that, but I’ll take the compliment. So thanks Marley, for increasing my relationship/wedding fever. Not what I need to be thinking about right now as these weddings actually (finally) start taking place.
Beyonce’s Single Ladies is dedicated to….my friend Mike. Who just commented on this quote that I posted as my Facebook status, because I am still entertained by it. Mike’s post was “I believe she stole that quote from me during my junior year at OU. ” So I can just get married and be a wife(y) to a gay man, right? Isn’t that how it’s done? As I said to Mike in my reply, put a ring on it. Afterall we’re not getting any younger or better looking. Although I have to say that I definitely feel a lot more comfortable in my skin now than since my teens began. So maybe like a fine wine, I get better with age.
In thinking about weddings and being a wife, I find this song much more my (current) style.
Listening to this song makes me want to put on a cute summer outfit- complete with sandals and sunglasses- and go on a roadtrip with any/all of my friends with a great soundtrack of mix cds/Itunes playlist. Can we make that happen? If only…
And although this is a daydream of mine, it reminds me why I love being a single lady. Although it would be nice to have a boy along for the ride too…but he best be cool with my friends. Another daydream, but maybe one day a reality. Boys. Boys. Boys. Unfortunately its you cannot have wedding/relationship/(baby) fever without them.
