So, earlier this week, FI and I were comparing our potential guest list. He had his on an Excel spreadsheet and I told him I had mine organized on a website and turned the screen to him (TK). He said, "You've been on that site for months." I told him that, yes, I have been on this site for awhile. He said something like, "Well, you must have been planning all of this for awhile." I was quite offended!
I then told him that I had been on the NOT ENGAGED YET board and that I hadn't been planning because of that. He then asked what I had learned from the NEY board. I told him that I had learned not to plan before an engagement and that LOLcats are awesome (he didn't know what LOLcats were - poor guy!).
Just now, he asked what I was doing and I said, "Knotting." He was like WTFBBQ (except not, because he doesn't know what that is)?!?!?! and I explained to him what it was. I think he was more concerned that I used it as a verb...
What do you do that your BF/FI/H just doesn't "get"?
