Dear ESB: My SIL is copping my style
Now I realize what I'm about to say is going to sound really silly and petty, but hear me out. My future sister in law is getting married very soon, I too am getting married this calendar year, but not until the summer time. I should have NEVER ever discussed any of my fabulous original ideas with her, who knew she's be stupid enough to steal them?! I had a fab idea I found on a blog for a cake topper, and wouldn't you know it my fiance told me his sister is doing it so we cant. really? really? get your own style and your own taste, why are you stealing mine? Given, it's just cake toppers but it enrages me! Not to mention she's already pinched my arm and told me I'm too skinny and need to gain weight, only to follow it up a few seconds later that she needs to loose 10 pounds before her wedding. I'm guessing these things stem from insecurities, but still annoying. Guessing I just ignore these things? Not worth calling them out? It makes my blood boil.
maybe you should FAKE HER OUT.
like, you let it slip (from an outside source, obviously) that you're planning to do a baby sea turtle release, and then at the last minute when she's got the sea turtles all bought and paid for, you say "Omigod. That is so cruel."
