Another one bites the dust.

December 16, 2009

I’ve continued to date. A lot. Probably too much. I call it my rebound rampage.

And I’ve also continued to not blog. In case you haven’t noticed. Because, by the way, my antidepressants got doubled last week. And my doctor prescribed some Klonopin on top of that. Merry Christmas to me!

Anyway, hopelessly cute Dog Park Guy who has dimples and beautiful brown hair and is all-around WAY out of my league took me to the movies last Wednesday. This is the conversation that ensued on the drive there.

DPG: So, my buddy asked me to help him ring shop today for his girlfriend.

Me: That’s awesome! Did you find something?

DPG: Well, what do you think a reasonable amount to spend on a ring is?

Me: Well, um, I’m poor, so my number is probably really different from yours.

DPG (who, did I forget to mention, is VERY well off): Oh, c’mon. Just give me a number.

Me: Well, you don’t want to be ostentatious about it. (Stalling as I try to remember how much MY engagement ring was and then adding a little extra on top of that so that I don’t sound too pathetic.) Maybe seven or eight grand?

DPG: Oh, yeah. I was thinking more like 20.

Me: Yeah.

It’s been a week, and I still haven’t heard from him.

    Mine was $600. I’m okay with that, because spending excessively on a glorified rock… I mean, WHY?
