My cousin is back..with a husband ...and pregnant.
Oh she left America a year ago to get married and is now back, with two months left of her pregnancy.
Nothing about her changed(physically) except for the very BIG and cute tummy.
So we were are the mall trying on clothes, and she asks me how she looks a shirt.
I reply, "...I mean.., you look like how a normal pregnant person does.."
"Is that good?"
"...Well you don't look AMAZING...but you like fine..."
"But I don't look amazing"
"..........I mean...you look like normal...um...pregnant person would....It doesn't look bad."
"Go get X (insert favorite hubby name)"
I trot over to the area where we left her husband and my brother. Only they weren't there anymore. Went outside, and saw husband walking toward me.
I guess I looked worried, cuz he started jogging toward me.
"D is looking for you"
"Is she not feeling well?"
"Oh no, she's fine"
And he slows down.
I take him over to the fitting rooms.
"D, X is here"
"Oh. Ok....X, do I look fat in this?
(Me: omg is she kidding me? How is he supposed to answer that??!)
"Do I look fat in this shirt?"
"...Um...Yeah you do."
(Me: Dude just said WHAT?!)
(Me: Oh he's gonna get it)
"......Should I not get it then?"
"If you like it, then just get it"
"Ok I'm going to get it then"
(Me: ...What just happened ???)
And then earlier during the day,
D and X are talking about Indian soap operas or movies or something, with the rest of my family.
X stops in the middle of the conversation, "Oh and D learned a song from one of the movies. And she sings it really well"
D: "Oh my god. Stop"
X: " No really. Sing it for them"
Me: What the heck is going on?
X: "No sing it for them. She does it so well too. Go on sing it. You know the whole thing. You've sung it so many times before"
Me: Why is this scene so incredibly weird
And D starts saying the words of the song.. It's not really a singy-songy song. But it's like a nursery rhyme.
But I was still stuck on the conversation that happened before it...I still am.
And then he complimented her again and again..and I was like, "Oh my God just keep buttering her up!"
X replies, "You say I butter her up, her other cousins say "Whtoosh!"
X: Yeah haha whtoosh!
D: Don't sayyy it
Me: Like a whip? As in whipped?
X: haha yeah!!
Me: This might be the first and only time I'll meet a guy who'll be so fine with joking around about that...
So yeah, he's not whipped; nothing close. It's almost like he's got my cousin whipped with his compliments and INCREDIBLY nice personality (mash'Allah* !!). Considering the fact that he married into the family, he acts nothing like an in-law.
NOTHING! He makes everyone feel so comfortable and at ease alhamdulillah **
I sit there wondering what he's done to my stubborn and don't-you-dare-touch-me, cousin of mine. She would never ever take kindly to her brother messing around with her by calling her fat, she would get uncomfortable when her mom hugged her, and had a low tolerance for people....
Seriously, what the hell happened to her?
* mash'Allah~God has willed it. It It is used to show joy and praise. It is said upon hearing good news
** Alhamdulillah~Praise or thanks be to God
