I always look at my previous post to see ifÂ I need to add anything elseÂ – anything that would help add depth to a person’s understanding. So, when I looked at Friday’s post, I thought:Â
You know, there really IS something missingÂ – something that I need to add.
However, it impacts someone else, andÂ I’m always reluctant to mention anything personal that could negatively impact another person. I’m not against it, mind you – just reluctant.
For instanceÂ I started outÂ Friday’s post, with:
I was talking to someone that I am very close to…
Should I tellÂ you that this ‘someone’ isÂ named Kate?Â That she has agreed to marry me? I’m just not sureÂ that I shouldÂ do that.
Y’all know howÂ nuts I am, and y’all know that it would take someone REALLY crazyÂ to actually agree to marry me. So, I’m…
Well, I’m just reluctant to accuse someone of being THAT crazy. It’s just not a nice thing to do.
And, then I’d haftaÂ go on and on about howÂ she’s the most beautiful woman in the world… That’s she’s awesome… That she’s smarter than I am…Â
And, saying all that could make a woman embarrassed.Â
A gentleman just does NOT embarrass a woman that he loves. It’s just not done.
Now, I know what you’re going to say. So, I’ll admit it rightÂ now:Â it’s a pretty silly idea for me to worry about being a gentleman, but ya’ gotta start SOMEWHERE. I mean, Kate will have a HUGE job on her hands trying to get me civilized.Â I shouldÂ at leastÂ TRY to do my part.
She’ll probably even make me pick up my socks.
And, then, there areÂ these “Have you set a date” questions. I’ve left that up to her, and sheÂ already KNOWS when I would like toÂ get married. Like… oh… TOMORROW?
So, you see, with all of these questions, and the sticky nature of the issue… Well, I think that you will understand.
I’ve decided not to tell you that I’ve met the most wonderful woman in the world and that she’s agreed to marry me.Â I mean, with all that I’ve said above, why wouldÂ I reveal details likeÂ that?
So, I’veÂ decided to keep it a secret, for now.
