But I'm breaking my own rule because of how this dream turned into a serious discussion for the Pretend Husband and I. Last night, I dreamt the Pretend Sister-in-Law set me up on a blind date. I was at a restaurant, talking to my date, getting to know him, when he asked if I was going on the [My Last Name] Family Vacation. I said, of course and somehow the PH's name came up.
"I live with him," I said (just realizing it myself).
"I bet someday you're going to marry him!" said my blind date.
"Oh, I'm already married to him!" I said (again, not realizing it until that moment). Then I tried to come up with reasons why I was on a blind date while already married, but they all sounded lame even to me ("I was looking to make a new friend.")
The date got mad and left, calling me names under his breath.
So I told the PH about my dream after I woke up this morning and still tried to come out of it looking good.
"I can't believe your sister would set me up on a blind date when I'm already married to you!" I said indignantly.
The PH replied, "Uh, how about the fact that you're married and you went?"
"But I didn't know I was married until I said it," I replied, sounding lame even to my own ears.
And that, my friends, is how the PH and FunnyGal KAT came to agree that neither one of us is allowed to go on blind dates while we are married. The end.
