I tell you this because, seriously, get ready....
He asked me to be in his wedding!
I was too taken aback to get all the details, although he promised I would not have to wear pink tulle like I did in the last wedding I was in (yes, I am STILL bitter about that).
How completely and insanely inappropriate. I was feeling weird about even just going to his wedding, but to be in it? Holy crap, Captain Awkward! Its wrong for so many reasons. First and foremost, I have already announced to all of my unmarried girlfriends that I am done being a bridesmaid. Its not because I don't love them, its because its ridiculous at this age to get gussied up in matching satin and tulle and line up at the altar. I just didn't know I had to announce to my guy friends that I didn't want to be a groomsman either!! But more importantly, this is a guy I lived with, picked paint colors with and survived family holidays with. For SIX YEARS! Everyone in the audience would be focused on how weird it was that I was a groomsman, instead of focusing on how weird the happy couple is!
I have to call him back and tell him no. I feel so bad about having to say no. I've never said no before. I suck at saying no. But I would suck more at being a groomsman.
