Since our dad passed away 2 years ago, and my mom is a little short on English, Chris (my future brother-in-law) asked me for my permission to marry my sister. It was the sweetest most romantic thing ever!
So last night, we all planned to go to my moms house for our traditional Christmas cookie making, and I wondered if Chris was going to propose to Wendee there. I had hoped he wouldn't because I was afraid one of us would say something to ruin the moment. Tact is something we lack in situations like this!
I was going out of town for a week the next day, and Chris said he wanted to do it before I left so I had been texting him all week prior trying to get a clue as to when..
So my significant other and our dependant were doing some last minute shopping before arriving at my moms, when I received a very unfriendly phone call from my sister.
This is how it went-
Ring, Ring.. me-"Hello?"
Her-"You (insert profanity that rhymes with witch)
Her- "You know what"
At this point, I know what but I've kept this a secret for a month or two, I'm not going to ruin things in-case its not what I think.
Me-"Seriously, I have no idea what your talking about"
Her-"Yes you do"
And we continued arguing back and forth for a few more minutes until finally she told me that Chris proposed on the way over and he told her I knew.
It was all very funny and sweet. I am honored that Chris trusted me with such a secret and so touched that he asked for my permission.
Congratulations Wendee and Chris! I can't wait until the wedding!
