On Christmas on 1991 was when I proposed to my wife. To understand why I proposed the way I did you have to know a little about me. I am one who loves to surprise people. When I first met my wife she was even a surprise, because the last thing I was looking for at that moment was to meet someone. Well, during the year of 1991 I surprised my wife many times. I surprised her with a picnic lunch on the living room floor in the middle of winter. On Valentine’s Day I wrote a poem to the local radio station, and had the local DJ dress up as cupid, come to her home, and read it to her on the air. I also sent her on a scavenger hunt, which she was really impressed with because I had taken out an advertisement in the newspaper to plant some of the clues that lead her around her home and then back to me. I just love doing those type of things and surprising people. I guess that’s why on Christmas I did what I did.
I found the biggest box I could find. Inside I put many other smaller boxes. I weighted it down with rocks to make it seem like a very large, heavy present. On Christmas Eve I brought it into the living room and told her she couldn’t open it until after midnight, Christmas morning. Well, needless to say it drove her nuts. Once when I left the room, I came back to find her shaking it, and pulling at the wrappings. I would not let her open the present. When midnight came, and I finally let her open it, she tore into it. She opened the large box to find a slightly smaller box. Inside I put a note expressing my love for her and how happy I was to have her in my life. She kept opening boxes and reading notes until she got all the way down to a box the size of a ring box. What she originally thought was something as big as a TV, turned out to be the biggest gift of my life, wrapped in a tiny ring box. She opened the box to reveal a diamond ring, and I asked her to marry me. She said yes, and today we have two wonderful children and I can say I am the happiest man in the world. But still planning my next surprise!
