The Targo and I hung out with his BFF and his fiancee this weekend. They're West Coasters and were in town for their shower. Pretty much it was an entire weekend of eating way too much and hanging out. Poor Nathan: His "schedule" was thrown way off.
Last night, we all had dinner together at the BFF's aunt and uncle's house. Because he's a far better person than I am, The Targo's BFF is still very close to his ex-girlfriend. And his fiancee doesn't seem to mind. Anyway, the Ex was at the shower and had dinner with us last night as well. Awkward situations seem to be the norm in my life, so naturally, this happened...
[Entire cast sitting on a couch, chatting about nothing.]
BFF's Ex: So, Targo - I ran into your ex-girlfriend a couple of weeks ago.
The Targo: Oh? That's nice.
Me [sitting quietly ... why is she bringing this up?]
Ex: Yeah --- blah blah blah long story blah blah blah --- and I told her that you were married and had a baby. It totally ruined her day!
Me [*crickets* nervous laughter]
The Targo [at me]: You're so mean!
Me [near hysterical laughter, because I'm like that.]
Ex: Yeah. You know how competitive she is. I guess she's mad that you did something before she did.
At this point, I was cracking up because 1) why in the world would the Ex thinks this is an appropriate conversation? And 2) My gosh, The Targo and I have been together for almost eight years. I obviously don't care how The Targo's ex feels about me or him, and I can't imagine why she felt it necessary to discuss this. *eye roll* But for The Targo's sake? I hate to this the BFF's Ex would go back to The Targo's ex and say "That Marianne is such a #(%@)! She just laughed hysterically. Oh, and she's FAT!"
