I told her she needed to bring me to the Baltimore airport (about 1 hours away), for a 5:45am flight as I was going on a business trip. She told me that I was nuts, and to drive myself. The day before I was supposed to go, her boss called her and informed her that she neeeded to be at a breakfast meeting in Baltimore at 8:00am. So she decided to drive me up there bags, golf clubs and all.
Well I had her pull into the satalite parking area, as I was meeting everyone else there. I had her park, and then told her that I lied and was not going on a business trip. She looked at me (again like I was nuts). I then pulled out two tickets, and told her we were flying to the Bahamas…right now! Her boss helped me out a little with this one. I had her bags packed, even had her golf clubs. We weren’t even living together at the time…I even had all of her makeup!
Well we went through security…and I realized the ring was in my pocket. Beads of sweat started pouring off my face as I thought I was going to be busted. But I made it through….yahoo!
So later that day, we were in the Bahamas, and she still couldn’t believe it. We spent the day at the beach, swimming and goofing around. That night we went out, did a little gambling, then had dinner. I was so nerveuos I could barely eat. She wanted to go back out to do some more gambling, but I said I wanted to go for a walk on the beach…so we did.
So Imagine this, a perfect moonlit night, just the two of us on the beach, my pants rolled up around my ankles as I carried my shoes, with the waves crashing at our feet. There was absolutely no one around, we had the entire beach to ourselves. She had been thinking about getting a roomate in her condo. I asked her if I could be her roomate…yes she looked at me like I was nuts. Then I asked if I could be her roomate for the rest of her life! Needless to say…she said yes.
