After 4 1/2 years of dating, his job took him to another state. The long distance relationship wasn’t working. We missed each other when apart, and when we were together it seemed all we did was fight. One weekend we had "the fight" and decided it was time to move on. My idea of moving on was to take his name off the answering machine message. (We had lived together before his move out of state.) He called one morning as I was getting ready for work. He asked if I could do him a favor and put his name back on the answering machine in case one of his clients still had that number. Fine, I said, was there anything else. Yes, just one more favor, he said … would I marry him. It’s not what a girl expects at 8 AM on a Tuesday morning, still dripping wet from the shower. To make a long story short … I couldn’t be more delighted to grant him this favor.
