Apparently lots of people CAN keep a secret

In the excitement of getting engaged last weekend, I realized an oddity: the number of people who know before your girlfriend does.

You'd think it is:
  1. Me.
  2. Her dad.
  3. Her.
In reality though, it's:
  1. Me, of course.
  2. My brother.
    1. My sister-in-law
  3. Google.
  4. Almost a dozen jewelers.
  5. Her second mom of sorts, before she passed away.
  6. Her friend for ring recon.
  7. My parents.
  8. My good friend.
  9. My insurance guy.
  10. Her dad.
    1. Her mom.
  11. Two coworkers, accidently.
  12. Her.
Plus several friends who basically knew without it being confirmed.

Oy.

  1. In light of recent NSA coverage, I'm very proud of Google for keeping your secret.
