The Proposal (part 2)
Monday, June 5, 2006 11:54:02 PM
as I was saying, mark completely threw me off guard when he proposed during the appetizer. In one swift, fluid motion he pulled the box out of his jacket pocket and was bending down on one knee.
I couldn't have been more shocked if he had sat there and grew another head.
But, there he was on bended knee looking as nervous a boy on his first day of school. With trembling fingers, he opened the royal blue ring box.
I nearly gasped when I first laid eyes on the beautiful diamond solitaire.
I felt like my insides were about to come unglued.
I wanted to run around the restaurant showing my ring to anyone would look at it, or perhaps I would dance around the table, or maybe I would scream, or atleast cry like a baby.
All these things I wanted to do.....but all I could do was simply there smiling like cheshire cat and laughing like school girl.
The rest of the evening is a complete blur. I'm not even sure what I ate. I remember eating, of course, but right off-hand I can't tell you what that was.
