Saturday, 10/20/07, 1 day after my first date with MP:
Nerddd: ...oh, amma, it was all SO lovely...sigh...
Amma: So, when will he propose to you?
Nerddd: AMMA! We've been out once!
Amma: Well, how many more times does he need to go out with you before he proposes?
Nerddd: I'm walking away now.
Sunday, 10/28/07, 1 hour after my second date with MP:
Amma: How did it go?
Nerddd: Oh, amma, he's so LOVELY.
Amma: Did he say anything?
Nerddd: ...um, about what?
Amma: About marriage!
Nerddd: We're not having this conversation.
Tuesday, 10/30/07, 2 days after my second date with MP:
Amma: Wow, look at these beautiful engagement rings in this DeBeers catalog I received in the mail!
Amma: Sabila...I think you'd like something like this...
Nerddd (still reading)
Amma: Don't you want to think about what kind of ring you want.
Nerddd: AMMA! Two dates! Two dates!
Amma: ...I'm just saying...oooh. Look at that one.
Tuesday, 11/06/07, 3 days after my third date with MP:
Amma: Wouldn't you say meeting him three times is quite enough?
Nerddd: Err, no.
Amma (after a brief pause): Sabila.
Amma: Don't go to his apartment, okay?!
Nerddd: Amma! Can we not talk about this.
Amma: And if it's raining the next time you see him, don't take the umbrella that he bought you.
Nerddd: Well, why not?
Amma: You don't want him to think that you don't own any umbrellas of your own.
Nerddd (A SEETHING SILENCE)
