April of 2008. I was obsessive-compulsively filling in my calender. In the midst of blithe scrawls of 'BREAK' across the first week, obscure holidays like Family Day (S. Africa) and birthdays of people I hardly knew/had only heard of (e.g., Drew's Older Sister's Birthday), one little day was packed with three or four events. In tiny, millimeter-high text, it could easily be missed:
I don't doubt that a lot of people did miss it. I didn't get near as many questions from people as I thought I'd might (though admittedly not a lot of people read my calender, and if they did they were probably just examining my doodles instead of reading it like they said they were.).
But I know what you're thinking. "What? Christina?! I have heard nothing of engagement. What is going on."
Perhaps I ought to explain.
