5) Fiddler on the Roof

I met Stewart when I was in my last year of
law school at a university graduate happy hour on a Tuesday. He
was in medical school and I saw him sitting next to someone I had
known from undergrad and he had the most beautiful blue eyes I
had ever seen. I not- so – nonchalantly gave him my number. He
asked me out on a date that Friday and we have been inseparable
since!

On our 2 year anniversary, Stewart took me to
a local theater to see a production of Fiddler on the Roof. I didn’t
think anything
of it as I love the theater. I did a lot of acting when I was younger
and I was even in a production of Fiddler. We had really good seats. At
the end of the show, when the cast took their curtain call, the
actor playing the lead Tevye quieted everyone down, had the
house lights brought up and said, "We get a lot of requests
at this theater to do a lot of things. Most we deny. However, we
had a special request tonight and in the spirit of Fiddler and
marriage and matchmaking, is there a Dr. Stewart Davis in the house?" During
the curtain call, someone had brought Stew a microphone. The house
lights were turned down and a spotlight was put on him. He said
that he couldn’t have found a more perfect time or place to ask
me to marry him b/c he knew how much I loved the theater. He got
down on one knee and we got engaged in front of the whole theater!
The whole theater was crying and saying how sweet Stew was and
how happy they were for us. A cast member congratulated us
and told Stewart that he was really impressed that he was able
to sit through the 3 hour show, knowing that he was going to propose
at the end.

I found out later that we had been sitting in
the seats of the owner of theater (The mayor of the city was at
the theater last
night and had to sit in the back:)) It was the most amazing night
of my life!
