Whilst doing the make up of yesterdays bride I realised that nobody has ever asked me to marry them. How sad! I mentioned it at our odd* dinner party and it sparked off a heated debate on how men don't feel the need to get engaged or married, they just do it to make the woman happy. I didn't agree with this because I don't think men would actually bother to propose and do the whole wedding fiasco thing if they really didn't want to.
*Odd dinner party being the type where you invite people over to dinner, knowing that there is not enough food to feed them. So you call your partner and ask him to stop off at the shops on the way home and buy some food.An hour and a half and 3 very hungry girls later your partner walks in with no shopping muttering about problems at work. While you dash into the kitchen and cook three different meals out of nothing, your guests ask your partner,who works in a cemetary, what sort of problem could possibly happen in his workplace?
After scaring them a bit by telling them one of the dead woke up (can you believe they fell for that!) he said he didn't want to talk about it. So your guests pester him a bit more and just as you are serving up tuna and bean salad for 2, vegetable omlette for one and pork casserole for 2, he relents and tells you all about the coffin that exploded.
So you quickly change the subject and kick off a debate about men, marriage, seperation and divorce, and top up the wine glasses faster than usual, hoping to keep everyone distracted from what they are really thinking about...
