I Was Told There Would Be Cake

“Life starts out with everyone clapping when you take a poo and goes downhill from there. ” ~ Sloane Crosley, I Was Told There’d Be Cake

I Was Told There Would Be Cake

I was asked recently when I would finally settle down and “set the date.” That kind of crapping question always sets me back a spell. Heck, I reckon not a spell a’tall, more like it sets me back down next to my pet dinosaur I played with as a child. Geesh, kidding! I’m not quite THAT old, unless your talking to my mum and mention my state of spinsterhood, of course…. After I caught my breath, I thought about it for a week or two, consorted with a few psychics, and did some intense studying on the topic. Though the person has long since wandered off and probably forgotten the question, I thought of the perfect answer. Yeah, I frequently suffer from post-mature humor dysfunction like that. It’s hereditary.


Actually, I totally swiped it from Sloane Crosley’s novel “I Was Told There Would be Cake,” but after a week, I really thought I should think of something.  Let me re-phrase, “when will you set the big date, don’t you want to be in happily ever after marital bliss?” I respond, “I do want to get married. It’s a nice idea. Though I think husbands are like tattoos–you should wait until you come across something you want on your body for the rest of your life instead of just wandering into a tattoo parlor on some idle Sunday and saying, ‘I feel like I should have one of these suckers by now. I’ll take a thorny rose and a “MOM” anchor, please. No, not that one–the big one.”   Yep, that about sums it up nicely. Check out the pretty’s I am wearing, I may never take them off. The only problem is I am having a difficult time dragging it out into the real world…

  1. LOL, twinzies . There is no timeline to get married Dollface and the correct answer to when are you going to settle down and get married is “when I am ready” no expiration and you may never be ready, but then maybe you will but it is for you and you alone to decide when that is. Don’t do it just because the question was popped or because your Mom wants. I have done it for convenience, I have done it because of peer preasure, and I have done it because in Vegas they let you drink two bottles of Champagne and marry the a-hole anyway. I have been single now for 20 years and I am just fine that way…………Steer your own ship sweets ❤
