It all started when my brother started dating this girl. Let’s call her Jenny. Jenny and my brother let’s call him Tommy, fell quickly in love. Although none of us knew why. We all just watched their relationship like a slow moving accident waiting for them to explode. And did they.
I love them both dearly, but separately. Very separately. Jenny is a free spirit. The type of spirit not meant to be tied down to a person or a place. I could easily see her wandering Tibet on a spiritual journey. Tommy is a carefree, but stable man. Though he may not realize it all of the time he is a southern family man. Their life paths simply were not headed in the same direction.
But who cares when you are in love. They got engaged anyways. After a year of negotiation. *Hint to readers, your engagement should not require negotiation. *
They were engaged for a few months, when their friends threw them an engagement party. We walked up the steps of this beautiful New Orleans Row house and there she was. Just standing there with her engagement ring on a necklace around her neck.
The entire sub plot of Carrie’s engagement to Aiden flashed before my eyes. Is she really at her own engagement party and not wearing the ring on her finger. This is not seriously happening. Who does this? I wanted to ask her just to see if she would say that she wanted the ring to be close to her heart, like Carrie used to say.
How did no one else at this party notice? Maybe we all noticed and we just didn’t say anything.
A few weeks later she broke it off. My brother broke into a million pieces. How do you tell someone that you saw this coming, we all saw this coming?
There are things that happen in real life and things that happen on tv and every once in a while they both happen together in a monumental disastrous way.
Did that really happen? Did she really Carrie Bradshaw her own engagement party?
Yes it did.
Omg!! This made me laugh a little but not at your brother just at the fact that she Carrie Bradshawed her own party I feel bad for your brother I hope he’s doing ok, My regards 🙂
It is too hilarious not to share. He is strong and will survive.
Hilarious! I like the carrie-bradshawed term… So sorry your bro didn’t take note!
You should see this hilarious post too… http://hardethaewoh.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/i-crushed-my-crush/
So funny! but at same time sad for your brother…
My goal is to use the phrase “Carrie Bradshawed” at least once today. Sorry for your brother/Tommy/Aiden, though.
So did you reach your goal ?
Unfortunately, no. But I did compare someone to Big, so I get some SATC cred for the day 🙂
Since I don’t watch SitC (I was apparently cranking out kids at that time in my life), I’ve never even heard the term. That sucked that it happened to your brother. I’m surprised he didn’t see it coming, and hope he holds out for true love the next time.
I am not sure, but I think I made the term up. I feel ya on cranking out kids. I believe that is where I am now. Does it calm down, ever?
Nope. And that’s the good part. 😀
I’m not following the reference, so I have this question: Did they receive presents at the party? If so, did they have to give them back?
Maybe it was a long con.
They did receive presents and no I did not get mine back. So what does that mean???
