Like A Horse And Carriage

Phone call with my mom this afternoon:

Mom (happily): "While Jack and I were on our cruise to Bermuda, we got engaged!!!"

Me (also happily, Jack is a good guy): "That's great! I'm so happy for you."

(pause)

Me: "Um...you don't have to get married, do you?"

Well well. Hooray for them!

Yes. I'm at that 'hooray for them' point now. I first reacted like a moody teenager. Your wife helped.

Glad he's finally making an honest woman of her.

I wouldn't go so far as to say "honest woman," but something in that general direction.

As for "moody teenager," you aren't going to turn to black lipstick and blue hair as a way to rebel and get attention, are you? Although I do like that Joy Division sound.
