If You Liked It Then You Shoulda Put A Ring On It

That's what I was singing, Sunday afternoon while I doing the prep work for dinner that evening. KB looked at my curiously for a few minutes before mustering the nerve to finally ask "why do you like that song so much?".

I had no answer. None that I could explain to him anyway!

The source of his curiosity was obvious. I have no ring on my finger, I am not technically single. He is obviously wondering why I figure I can relate. After all, any song a girl sings with such vigor...she can surely relate.

And I do. I, like thousands of other women, relish in the thought of flaunting my new ish in an old flame's face. We need to be able to prove we can survive without you, prove that we can be happier without you than we ever were with you. Whether it be a better body, a new swag, or in my case the replacement who I am halfway down the aisle with. So, no, there's no ring on it, but the sentiment is still there;

"You had your turn

but now you gonna learn

what it really feels to miss me.

Cuz If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it

If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it

Don’t be mad once you see that he want it"

Simple as that! All my single ladies, put your hands up!

The song is fun! And even if it wasn't a hint for your KB... maybe he should take note.

Lord knows I want to be married, but I also don't want to get married and be married for the wrong reasons. I can think of a few close calls where I am so glad he didn't put a ring on it!

I feel the same way. I would love to be married but I do not want to rush anything and have it end badly. I was engaged once and Lord knows I am thankful everyday that that relationship fell apart.

The next time I say yes I want it to be for all the right reasons.

wtf? You were engaged? When? How do I not know this?

Also, I do believe KB was curious cause he probably thought you were suggesting that he put a ring on it, ASAP, lol.
