Aaron tried to call me three times today. We had gotten into an argument the night previous about which movie was better, Year One or Land of the Lost. Aaron has basically been homo for Will Farrell since Night at the Roxbury, so he couldn't believe I actually thought that Year One was funnier. The argument got a little more heated than it should have and Aaron started to play the whole blasphemy card. Saying stupid things like, "You only like that one better because you haven't felt the spirit since the mission." and "If Year One and Land of the Lost were brothers Year One would be Lucifer."
Both movies were terrible, but if they were the last movies on Earth, and "funny" was the judging factor Year One is, I think, the obvious choice. The other guys heard our back and forth, and because of Aarons stupid, religious argument, pretty much all of them sided with me. Some hurtful things were said and Aaron ended up a little offended and storming off to bed early.
I thought he was calling to apologize or further argue or something so I didn't bother answering. Hasn't the idiot heard of text messages?
I couldn't have been further off base.
Aaron got home and as soon as he saw me said, "Dude." There was a look of concern on his face I hadn't seen since we were mission companions. I was suddenly aware that he had something very serious to tell me. I didn't say anything I just braced myself.
Aaron said: "Carla called me today and said that Andrea called off the wedding."
It took a second for Aaron's words to sink in.
I looked at Calvin and Tim who were in the kitchen with us when Aaron dropped this bomb. It took another couple of seconds for me to rein in the whirlwind in my head enough to say, "What? When?"
Aaron said that Andrea had gone through the Temple today. He said that a few hours afterward she canceled the wedding altogether. I stood by in a mini state of shock, while Calvin and Tim prodded Aaron for whatever details he knew of. Aaron's version was basic. Carla didn't know much about why Andrea canceled the wedding. Carla told Aaron that Andrea's mom told her that Andrea said it just wasn't right...
A very small part of me wonders if her rash decision has anything to do with me. After a little bit of thought I decided that it seemed bigger than that. I think if anything, our conversation a few days ago might have shaken her a little bit... maybe. Perhaps all my talk of eternal love had her second guessing herself.
Maybe the fireman did something dastardly. Maybe she had some revelation in the Temple. Maybe she lost her testimony and would be leaving the Church. Who knows?
Regardless... I haven't the first idea what to do... If anything.
I know that before I do anything I need to let some time pass. Canceling a wedding one day before it's supposed to go down is no small thing.
