Tomorrow is my 10 year high school reunion. It's a casual bbq-type event and there is a chance I will have to show up (initally) by myself. My husband has to work until ??? and will join me later. What should I say to my old classmates as to the whereabouts of my significant other, so I don't seem like a big loser that made up the whole 'being married' thing?
Beloved Reader, thank you for the question!
I went to my 10 year reunion two years ago and I was very freaked out about the whole thing prior to entering. The thing is, everyone is freaked out about it and they're too freaked out to really be concerned with what's going on with anyone else. You ask the questions you're supposed to ask and move on to the next person and forget what that person just told you. If people think you're lying they are clearly giant weirdos. Also, there will be enough people that are on facebook there to vouch for his existence. Then when he shows up take him to the weirdos that thought you were lying and point at him and say, "IN YOUR FACE!"
I would just act blasé about the fact that your husband is arriving later. Also, he's got a job so that's a bragging point. "That's right, I married a working man."
You'll find you're quickly more comfortable than you imagined you would be. Also, booze helps. Drink up.
