It's the Holidays and there never seems to be enough money in the bank. Unforeseen bills pop up, emergencies happen, clothing seems to scream my name from the store window, and I haven't begun to gift shop, yet.
I'm trying to ground myself and not buy any clothes until February. Let's see how long that lasts. (I just bought another dress online, so this grounding will start tomorrow)
Then there is the fact that my plane ticket to SA for this weekend...not bought, yet. Which means I will be paying at least $200 for a flight that usually costs $80. (unless the DING! God does something in my favor in the next day)
And it's so not my fault...remember how my Boss wanted to discuss my time off on Saturday? Discussed and time off was denied. She wants me to come to work for - wait for it -
the company Holiday lunch.
She suggested I work half a day and leave at two (when she thinks the lunch will be over). Her reasoning is that I am new and she would like for me to experience the lunch. I am pissed. Because as I know I won't leave work at two, puhleeze, so it's pointless for me to buy a plane ticket for set time/ pointless for me to ask for the day off/ just pointless.
O, Canada called me up late last week and started asking me all sorts of questions.
What was my degree in?
How long did it take for me to get my degree?
What do I do with my degree?
Do I own any businesses?
Do I own a house?
Have I ever been married?
Then the kicker: Would I be willing to put a bar in my name for him?
Then I had all sorts of questions for an answer to a question like that. Mainly - What? The?
Casually he dropped it on me, "We would be married"
And I won't lie, the hopeless romantic in me was flattered and quickly dreamt a future with him.
Then it really hit me, he is asking me to marry him, right now, on the quick so he can gain dual citizenship.
What's in it for me?
$15,000 and all my debt paid off by him (so I can have a clean credit slate for said bar to be in my name) and there could also be a possible house in my future.
WOW! What every girl dreams of, eh?
I told him I'd think about it because I didn't know how to get out of the conversation. He replied with 'is $15,000 not enough?'
We discussed this some more and I had to come to the conclusion that I am only discussing this to get out of saying no?!!? I know. CRAZY. So we ended it with him going to discuss things with his business partners and me thinking about it
Ha. Ha. Eh?
He hasn't called me back, yet. That's it, my best kiss ever turns into my first marriage proposal - isn't that how it's supposed to happen?
