Not Quite My Hero

| Romantic | January 23, 2012

(My boyfriend and I are walking in the park. He brings up marriage, even though I told him before we became an item that I never want to get married. We have recently been to a Foo Fighters concert together.)

Boyfriend: “So, your friends said that the perfect time for me to propose to you would have been when the Foo Fighters played ‘Everlong’. Did I miss my perfect opportunity?”

Me: “What? No! That would have been horrible! I’m so glad you didn’t! Who even said that?”

Boyfriend: “Why would that have been so horrible? It’s your favourite Foo’s song!”

Me: “Yeah, it is! But if you proposed and I’d say no. It would have ruined that song for me! Forever!”

Boyfriend: “But, why would you have said no? Don’t you love me?”

Me: “Of course I love you! But I’ve told you, I just don’t want to get married! Ever! To anyone!”

Boyfriend: “Seriously? Not even if I asked you?”

Me: “No. Sorry. It’s the same as when you told me before we got together that you never wanted to have children. If we’re going to be together, it’s just something we have to live with.”

Boyfriend: *muttering* “I would’ve wanted children if you asked me during a Foo Fighters concert.”
