It started out as a little discussion. SD and Bas Melech trying to decide if it's possible for a girl to get engaged and remain a homo-sapien. I maintained that it's not possible, while Bas Melech, obviously bearing a hidden ulterior motive, claimed it could be done.
"Just wait till YOU are a kallah," I said, in as smug a way as one can via gchat. "You won't just be a brideosapien. You'll be a bridezilla!" That got Bas Melech pretty scared. I couldn't see her face, but from the general tone of her IMs, I'm pretty sure it was turning more colors than there are in the rainbow. "No! Not a bridezilla! Anything but a bridezilla!"
So we finally agreed that Bas Melech could be a total bridosapien, but the bridezilla thing was left open. "We'll just have to see."
Turns out, we'll get to see sooner than I imagined! Last night, my phone rang. Caller ID read: Bas-Melech. I had already heard the exciting news, so I picked up with a loud "Mazel tov!" The first words out of her mouth were a demonstration of the pressure I'd applied. "I'm NOT gonna be a bridezilla!!"
So the bet is on. Any instance of bridezilla behavior on her part, and I drive directly to Bas Melech's house and dump a cup of ice cold coffee on her head. If that doesn't work, we resort to more desperate measures. But no pressure Bas Melech. Really, none whatsoever. Mazel tov!
