I just realized that in the course of one week, someone I know has gotten engaged, someone else has gotten married, and someone else has announced a pregnancy.
For some reason, this amuses me muchly. ;)
The pregnant!someone is my baby cousin, whose wedding I went to last year. She's six years my junior and now my mother is GIVING ME LOOKS. Help!
Mom: "They're [my aunt and uncle] going to be grandparents."
Me: "And yet, I'm still happy having dogs."
Me: "You think Darwin isn't completely superior to a crying infant? I'm going to tell him you think that, and he's going to be so hurt."
And the moment in which I reveal my true catty nature:
Mom: [Telling Grampa he's going to be a great-grandfather.] Erica's having a baby! You're going to be a great-grandfather!
Me: Except this time it's the grand-daughter that's actually MARRIED doing it.
Yeah, I have two cousins who... have difficulties making even remotely intelligent choices. They happen to be sisters. Sigh.
