*Blink*

After the excitement of the Big Brother 8 season finale and the glass and a half of wine I had, I was dozing in and out of sleep on the couch. The kind of dozing where your eyelids are too heavy to stay open, but you're still remotely conscious.

I was aware that Scott was on the phone. From the sound of the loud southern twang on the other end, I figured it was his mother. I dozed lightly while he wandered out on the balcony to smoke and I awoke briefly when he came inside to open another beer.

After popping the top, Scott came and stood directly over me while listening to his mother. "Mmm hmm," he uttered. I felt him looking at me, and I don't know why I did, but I kept my eyes closed.

"I know, Mom. I'm 31; I'm not getting any younger."

Unintelligible on the other end.

"Well Sarah's pregnant."

Unintelligible again, but this time a little louder. I tried not to choke in surprise.

"I'm just kidding! This time I'm just kidding!" he laughed. I could feel Scott hovering over me and peering directly at my face. "Well don't get ahead of yourself, Mom. If things are still going in December the way they are going now, I'm going to ask her to marry me."

So this is why I kept my eyes closed.

dont eat the token said...

OMG do you think he really thought you were asleep!?!?!

Who in their right mind would say that above a whisper from the other room with the door shut .. if he didn't want you to hear it.

I have to agree with peach here. It's just all too fast. That's not to say that sometimes things work out even when they go fast, but I think that's very rare and it's better to err on the side of caution. If it's meant to be, it will still be meant to be if you wait. December is really too soon. Why is he moving so fast? Eeek. But if you're happy, I'm happy for you!
