1. It’s FRIDAY!! At least as far as I’m concerned it’s Friday. I’m taking the day off tomorrow and heading home around noon. Here’s hoping Union Station isn’t quite as crazy this year as it was last year.
2. Random thought of the week: once someone becomes your fiancé, do they stop being your boyfriend? My co-teacher in Sunday School this past Sunday got engaged two weekends ago, and she mentioned her boyfriend at one point and then corrected herself with “fiancé.” She’s certainly not the only person I’ve ever heard do this, but I guess I’ve always considered your significant other to be your boy/girlfriend until they become your husband/wife, even if you’re engaged. But maybe that stems from my disdain for the word “fiancé,” due to how I’m used to it being used among my peers…how people are all, “This is my finacé, John. See how successful I am by pre-feminist movement standards? I beat you! I won the game! You lost!” Or the fact that I really don’t like it at all when someone refers to their significant other, no matter which stage of the relationship they are in, as they’re boyfriend/fiancé/husband instead of calling him John (or whatever his name is). Yes, we realize your relationship to this man. You’ve reiterated it 23428374 times. Just call him by his name.
3. I don’t really have anything else to say, so I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with all sorts of turkey comas, pumpkin pie, Black Friday shopping, or whatever it is you enjoy most about the holiday 🙂
