I heard a funny story yesterday on the radio about a marriage proposal that made the news. Apparently, a guy had first met his girlfriend on a group date at Wendy's, so to propose to her, he decided to do it at Wendy's with all of those friends around him. The friends knew he was going to pop the question...and that he had buried the engagement ring in her frosty.
Well, the guy's friends had decided they wanted to speed up the process, so they challenged the girl to some kind of frosty eat-off. You can see where this is going...the girl totally ate the engagement ring and didn't know! LOL
It took a lot of convincing for her to realize what had happened--and a trip to the ER, complete with a stomach X-ray, showing the ring in her stomach. At this point, their friends pointed out that the guy hadn't actually proposed yet. So the guy, x-ray in hand, proposed to her there, and she said yes. Even though she had to wait for nature to call until she got her ring back. ROFL
Know how the manpanion popped the question to me? He called me upstairs and told me to look under my pillow. I did, and saw a tanzanite ring in there. It was gorgeous--and my favorite stone!! So I thanked him and put it on the ring finger of my right hand...LOL. I was totally certain it wasn't an engagement ring and didn't want to get my hopes up and go down that road.
Anyway, so his face turned beet-red and he said: "Well, you can put that on your other hand, if you want." LOL
The kids still tease him about never "officially" proposing to me.
Of course, after he said that, he did say a lot of very romantic stuff. All in all, it was funny and romantic at the same time. :D
By the way, when I called my mom to tell her I was engaged, she instantly said, "In what...felonious activities?" Apparently, she never thought we'd actually do it since we'd been together for two years at this point with no apparent engagement in sight. hahaha
