the ring is coming soon...

Today little 8 year old Sidney was in our office. Her mom is an AMAZING volunteer & Sidney was just kicking around. Literally. The girl stole my shoes--I chased, tackled, and tickled her. She is so funny. She calls Chris 'Fuzz' based on a previous character he's played.

This afternoon I'm at my desk, just typing away, when she comes over & plops down in Chris' chair.

"Where does Fuzz sit?" --Sidney
I point at where she's sitting.
"Oh. You like Chris." --Sidney
"Yes. I do like Chris. I love him." --sb
"You love him?" --Sidney with a sly grin
"I'm going to say something that sounds weird. I mean, it will sound really weird. I kinda don't want to say it because of how weird it'll sound." --Sidney with a very mischievous look
"Ok" --sb with a smile
"It's weird." sigh. "The ring is coming." --Sidney with a look of anticipation
"Ok." --sb with a confused smile
"No. The ring is coming soon." --Sidney with an even greater look of anticipation
"You're getting a ring?" --sb purposefully not showing comprehension
Sidney points at Chris' desk.
"Chris is getting a ring?"--sb
"No. The ring is coming soon." --Sidney slightly frustrated
"Chris is giving me ring soon? He's going to ask me to marry him & give me a ring?"--sb with a sly smile
"YES!" --Sidney with a very happy look
"Do you know when?" --sb
"The ring is coming soon." --Sidney with a sly look
Chris enters. Sidney looks away from him.

Now I'm curious as to why she thinks that. Chris isn't going to propose to me this week or any time soon. I like not knowing. I also like other people thinking they know when I'll be engaged. I think I might make a score card for when people ask, how they ask, and give a prize to the person who comes up with the most creative way of asking me about it.
