- [Monica wants to hide from Rachel the fact that she went shopping with Julie, so she creates an alibi.]
- Monica: Phoebe, listen. You were with me and we were shopping all day.
- Phoebe: What?
- Monica: We were shopping and we had lunch.
- Phoebe: Oh, all right. What did I have?
- Monica: You had a salad.
- Phoebe: Oh. No wonder I don’t feel full. –Friends
On Tuesday Couple Wife and Couple Baby met up with me after work to go shopping. I had mentioned to CW that I needed a whole new wardrobe, and since Match and I just got our deposit back from our old place, we figured it was the perfect chance to go on a little spree. I’m fashionally challenged, so CW said she’d love to come along and be my personal shopper. She went through the outlet stores with me, pulling clothes off racks and making me try them on, even if they weren’t in my comfort zone.
I ended up getting a bunch of cute outfits that I never thought I’d like. CW was a great help, and it was a lot of fun. It was a nice bonding experience for the two of us. I bought a cute black dress for my company’s Christmas party next month, and Couple Wife teased me that when Match sees me in it, I’ll have a ring for sure. We also talked about how nice it would be to go on orlando vacations together, the four of us, someday. I can definitely picture me and Couple Wife hanging out with our little ones, going on walks or on these little shopping outings together. I know Match and I will get to where Couple Friends are eventually, but we still have some ducks to get in a row first. Still, I can’t wait for that day to come!
