EXHAUSTING THE ROMANTIC POSSIBILITIES
submitted by: Lynne Olcomendy
It was my 25th birthday. I was pretty sure my boyfriend of nearly 4 years was going to propose. He wanted to take me to dinner, but on my birthday I was extremely ill. (Actually I made it thru part of the day at work – long enough to receive the dozen long stemmed red roses – my favorite – that he’d sent).
I was asleep on the couch, near death I was sure, when he came over to see me. He gave me a huge box with my birthday gift inside. I was really hoping it would be a box inside a box etc. leading to an engagement ring. No such luck. It was an exhaust manifold for my car.
I still married the man – he proposed a couple of weeks later on the 4 year anniversary of our first date -and wouldn’t you know I had food in my mouth when he popped the question – but that’s another story…
