Nicole's Reaction

I've told most everyone that I am moving away. I haven't posted it on Facebook... so I suppose I haven't told everyone...

All my friends and family been crazy supportive! My sister, Nicole's reaction was the best. I didn't want her to be one of the last people I told, but nailing down such a social butterfly such as she is pretty difficult.

After a week of trying to see her, I finally texted her

"Look, I need to tell you something, so let's do lunch"
"Is it bad?"
"I don't think so"
"Ok. I'm free tomorrow"

She picks me up from work and we go to lunch. We eat and drink a few beers. Well, I drink a few beers as my little butterfly had one too many the night before at Ladies Night.

We're chatting and catching up as my stomach begins tying itself in knots as I know I need to spill the beans soon.

Finally, she casually says:

"Oh yea, what's your news?"
"Eeeeee... I'm so nervous to tell you!"
"You're moving aren't you" (deadpan)
"Wait, what?? How did you know?"
"Well I figured you were moving or pregnant and you just had two beers, soooo....."
"Well, how do you feel about it?"
"Fine. I mean we don't see each other that often anyways... I mean, I hate Dan now... but it's fine"

She's kidding of course. She likes Dan (far far more than my previous choices). I'm sure this is difficult for her, and she's not really exploring the emotion of me leaving right now. Especially since we've never been too emotional around each other. But I'm happy to have her support and spend as much time together before I leave.

(The best part was on our way back from lunch, her phone was blowing up. I asked her who was texting her, and she said all her friends were asking her "what the big news was". She didn't remember telling all of them I had big news I was sharing with her today. She also didn't remember the massive speculation, and probable bets that were placed on the outcome. Oh vey)

I hope to bring her to Germany so we can go exploring Shock Sister style. This style has gotten us into quite a few shenanigans in the past, so I'm looking forward to putting a European twist on it.

Gonna miss this hilarious nugget.
