On December 25th, 2016, I asked my high school sweetheart to marry me. On December 26th, 2016, my sister said something to me that made me very annoyed. Having just gotten engaged, we obviously were both excited and feeling great about the future. Being newly engaged is an exciting time for any couple, but everyone knows those people. My sister got married last year, and if you know my sister, you know that she says things all the time that she definitely should not say. The day after we got engaged, we were just sitting around in our parents' living room, and she randomly says, "being engaged was one of the worst times of my life." Ugh.
Now I already know how my sister is so this eloquent exclamation comes as not much of a surprise for me, but honestly. Did she really have to say that? There are things you say and things you just don't say, no matter the circumstance. Maybe she did have a terrible engagement, but guess what? Don't say that to a newly engaged couple. Like, ever. I just don't understand why she could have possibly thought that was a good thing to say. Ugh. Guess what though! We now have our whole entire wedding planned and it was not that bad. And I'm the guy, so I'm the one who is supposed to hate it. So just because you have a terrible experience with something, don't say dumb things like that. It's really not that hard.
