This is how I proposed. It was Wed.4/21/04,Humpday. I also picked up the ring that day as well. There were no signs of romance in the air, which was a good thing because I wanted to catch her with her pants around her ankles. We had just finished dinner and she was in a pretty good mood, for a Wed. anyway. She asked me to go on a walk, I agreed to go. Before leaving the house, I was looking for either chalk or a candle to take with me on our walk. So as we were walking in our dimly lit neighborhood. I started scribbling her nickname on the asphalt to see if the candle will mark up the street. "G$" was written clear as day on the street.
There’s this gazebo with a water fountain in our complex covered with flowers, I thought that would be an ideal place for me to pop the "Q", however, the candle wax/scribble wasn’t seen clearly on white pavement. So I had to scrap that idea.
We proceeded to a very surrealistic street. It was empty, the asphalt was dark as the evening sky. Visualize a block from "Sesame Street" at night time. We stopped right there. I got down and started writing "ARRY" then "E" underneath the "ARRY". My then girlfriend said, "ARRY E?". So I said, "Babe, give me your hand." As she gave me her hand, our silhouette formed the letter "M". So I asked her to read it again… She said, "Arry E…Mmmarry Me?" She looked over to me and asked if I was serious. From that point, I dropped to one knee and asked her to be my wife. Instead of saying yes, she shrieked, "OH MY GOD!!!, WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR!?!?!?!". So I took that as a yes.
We haven’t set a date yet, but May 14. 2005 is looking pretty sweet. Thanks for reading my story.
