AAAAAGGGHHH!

It's official, I'm becoming an old fart.

She's 20 years old, and her fiancé is a very fine hardworking boy. But Jeezus this is tough to get my head around. My little girl will be getting married!

The following is a representation of all the feelings I'm having right now:

And finally, and most importantly,  old

So what sort of dad are you? Did you ask for the guy's CV and current salary? 

And don't forget it's the brides parents that has to pay for the wedding!  bigthumbsup

Congratulations to your daughter.

Is she someone that wants an expensive wedding that costs like $20-30 thousand. That will put a hole in your bank account  Wink

OMG! Congratulations in one side, but the other side must be hard to watch your little girl grow up. When my son left diapers earlier this year, it was even a little bittersweet to realize he was no longer a baby.

Since my daughter is only six, at least I can wait several years before she looses her innocence. And whichever guy she marries will have a hard time with her anyways, she has a looooong family history of females that are totally and completely female. For example, she already told me she could drink a regular Coke because 'it could make me fat'. Realize now that most of the women in our family are not skinny and dont worry much about diets.

Anyway, congratulations again. Keep us posted.

Look at the bright sides of this Big grin

1) no grandchildren yet- that means you're not an old OLD fart
2) She's still your widdle girl and will always be, till the day she dies
3) You haven't beaten Andy, agewise yet

Congratulations, man Big grin

Yeah, you might want to watch out if she starts talking about values of Qatar and that her country will rule the world someday...

If it makes you feel any better, I'm sure he's been nailing her for quite some time. Now it's just at the point where she becomes an honest woman.

Thanks for all the wishes, guys.

I've insisted that he be financially self-sufficient before they get married, so it will be another couple of years. He's an apprentice chef in a 5-star hotel. He's extremely good at what he does (he did our family's christmas dinner bash last year), but he needs to finish the apprenticeship first.

But he's come an awful long way since I first met him a few years ago. He was a wigger at the time (white guy who tries to dress and talk like a rapper). The first time he came to the house I chased him off with a bat. Now he has learned how to act more civilized, can mix with any company (including 5-star customers), and he thanks me for having shaken him up a bit  Smile.

20 years old... Wow.

I cannot see myself getting engaged in the next five years. Eek (my parents think the same thing).
