B* the origin story
Hellloo....well I have some time on my hands..so I figured we could explore the Beaver Origin story or as I like to say WTF..were you thinking DH?
DH grew up in a small one stop light town in the middle of the mid-west. When he graduated he wanted nothing more than to get the F out of said small town. DH is one smart cookie...and college seemed like the logical choice. However, DH knew he was in no way ready for college and would just party his way right out there. So, he took a job after graduation and pondered his future. Meanwhile, my MIL, kept trying to marry DH off to one of her church friends daughters. Ugh....
DH tired of MIL's meddling did the only thing he could think of to get away from MIL and out of podoke junction..He joined the Navy.
In the Navy DH decided having a girlfriend or a wife while on active duty was not an option. He saw and was part of too many..uh extra curricular activies while guys were out to see. So, he had a string of girls in and out of his life.
Fast forward he has gotten out of the Navy and moved to our fair city where MIL/FIL and the crew had moved too. He got a good job at a bank and was moving up. Like I said DH is one smart cookie.
DH still liked to string the ladies along and had one girl that was his "booty call". Dh no intention of having any serious relationship with this girl and was upfront about it. The "booty call" had a roommate....BEAVER. MMM.....and the plot thickens.
Beaver is most certainly not DH's type. Dh tends to like small, dark or red headed women. He also tends to gravitate to women who are smart and independant and a bit quirky. (I am really short and tiny, have really dark hair, tattoos, nose piercing and independant streak that is longer than SD's snapchat streak, and my geek flag flies really super high) Beaver is short, wasn't small even back in the day and is blonde. She is also about as deep and interesting as the shallow end of the pool. But, Beaver is a chamelion...she will change and become whatever the people she is around are. She will ike whatever they like, will try to look like them, etc Weird....
Beaver set her sights on her roommates "booty call" guy. Why....well DH made good money, had his own place, was cute and was graced with some assets in the bedroom. Beaver made it her mission to be in places that DH was and to make herself the epitomy of what DH wanted.
DH by his own admission had grown weary of the player lifestyle and wanted settle down. Beaver stalked and talked to DH all the time and she seemed to echo everything DH wanted, a wife, children, a house, etc. Poor DH he fell for this..and started to date Beaver on the down low. Oy....DH..never date your "booty calls" roommate...its just WRONG. They had to keep the relationship a secret since Beaver still lived with "booty call". DANGER...DANGER DH...DANGER
DH says they dated for a few months and Beaver was at his house ALL THE TIME. He was really getting a little tired of her being there all the time...and was ready to tell her, lets take a break. He came home to his apartment one day...and Beaver had moved in. Seems roommate was not at all please that Beaver pursued and was dating DH. Imagine that....and roommate was the lease holder so out Beaver went.
Normal people would find somewhere to live..but not Beaver she just up and moved into DH's apartment. All the WTF here...her reasoning, she was there all the time and she could save on rent by moving in. DH didn't quite know what to do..so he just went with it. (AGAIN...WTF DH) He also found out later that she had 15k in credit card debt and couldn't get an apartment on her own.
The lived together for about 6 months when DH decided what the hell, she is there and she is "ok" and he would just marry her so he could be married and start his adult life. Beaver has been talking about marriage and buying wedding books and giving him pictures of rings for months. HOLY SNIKIES DH...not a good reason to get married.
DH took himself to Service Merchandise and bought a standard round diamond ring and was set to propose to the Beaver. He called her mother to work on a plan to make sure Beaver didn't come home too soon.
Dh got off work early, made dinner for them..(Dh could not cook so this was BIG) and lite candles. Beaver came home, yelled at DH for lighting the candle as it was some super duper special candle...and the proceeded to stomp up the stairs and change into her sweatpants and ratty t-shirt. She then came down and complained she didn't like the dinner DH had made and that it looked yucky. (This is a lovely trait she would teach to the skids). Then the phone rings and its Beaver Sr asking Beaver if Dh has asked her yet...way to ruin that surprise Beaver Sr.
AT this point DH is not at all sure he wants to marry this mess and hasn't pulled the ring out of his pocket yet. Beaver turns to him and asks if he has something for her...DH pulls out the ring slaps it on the table and says "well will ya" and that was it. That was his proposal....well will ya...nothing says I love you than...well will ya. (NO that is not how DH asked me to marry him....ours was rather cute and I got a custom made diamond ring with a somewhat rare Ascher cut diamond as its center.)
Hindsight...DH was like I should have kept that ring in my pocket and kicked her fat ass out that night. Instead I signed up for 7 years of indentured servitude.
