If someone asked you that question, what would you assume they were asking?
I got asked that today by a (notoriously bitchy) co-worker, who's insanely jealous of anyone who's younger than she is (she's 36) who gets engaged or married before she does. (She's been with her 19-year-old BF for two years, from the day he turned 18 on).
So I kind of looked at her and was like, "Uhm....6.5?" Because I assumed she was asking what my ring size is. Which is still an odd question, but whatever.
Then she says, "No, no, I mean, how big is your stone? How many carats?"
I said, "Oh, it's a whole lot of none of your damn business, thanks!"
One of my co-workers, who hates her even more than I do, said, "It's bigger than yours, because you don't have one yet, and you're jealous."
We work in news, and that statement managed to silence the whole room.
I'm gonna go with 'not my circus, not my monkeys.'
