BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL
submitted by: Sharon Walker
My son had recently recovered from a serious auto accident. He broke his back and neck in 5 places, broke his sternum and knee and was very lucky to be living. He recovered in record time. His then girlfriend helped take care of him as he was very critical when I brought him home from the Vanderbilt trauma unit and it was a 24/7 job.
She showed the most compassion for any young person I have met in a long time.
After weeks of care and lot of love, my son decided to propose to her. Due to his accident, Jeff has not been able to work or finish school yet. He had to think of a creative way to propose on a $0 dollar budget.
His girlfriend is a wonderful girl with great morals and values.
Her downfall is her red sports car. She has to pay close attention to her led foot and not get a ticket. Because my son is “young and poor” and he wanted to get the proposal on video without her knowing it as a gift later on he decided to ask the county Sheriff’s Office if they would help. He asked if they would take him to the interstate and pull her over when she went by on her way home from work. They agreed. After she got off of work, they were hiding on the interstate, waited for her to drive by, turned on the lights and siren and pulled her over.
Krisiin’s first thought was to ditch the cop before he caught up to her. Well, have we not all thought of that idea at one time or another? Before she realized it they were on her bumper. She pulled over and the Sheriff came to her window. The whole time she was thinking that she was being careful not to speed. She asked him was was the matter and he said that someone reported her as driving recklessly. Then he asked her to get out of the car. Now she is thinking sobriety test and she does not drink. He said she would have to sit in the back of the police vehicle for safety reasons why he checked her license.
Jeffrey was in between the two cars on his knee with the engagement ring. When she saw him she stood there with her mouth hanging wide open wondering what in the heck he was doing on his knee and why was he behind the car. He proposed to her and the entire time the police video camera was on and he was wearing a police microphone recording the entire event. The entire engagement from the blue lights to the “Yes I will” was captured forever.
It may not be the most romantic way to propose, but one of the most creative was. She was so caught off guard that he proposed to her. Later he took her out to a romantic dinner and gave her the video to view every anniversary to come.
