Check the calendar. LW got married on a FRIDAY. So BIL is having engagement party on saturday and wedding the following year on Sunday."My husband and I were married last May 11. My new brother-in-law is now engaged, and we are thrilled, although we do not know his fiancée very well. They have picked dates for both their engagement party and their wedding: May 11 this year and next year."
WEll, that's dumb. Because if you got married on May 11, 2012, on a Saturday, then their engagement party will be May 11, 2013, on a Sunday, and their wedding will be on May 11, 2014, on a MOnday. Who freakin' does THAT?
This makes me think of a Gnarls Barkley lyric from Crazy
"Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control"
I feel like saying to her
"Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think anyone gives a rat's ass when your wedding date was?"
Its like LW thinks that moving forward, this day is going to be a date that is celebrated by others and is upset that she will have to share that weekend with BIL. Bless her soul. Ain't that cute.
Pretty soon, she'll realize that her anniversary will be recognized by others with a greeting card or not at all.
