Time is a Funny Thing

It is so relative. For example, I am going to post about what is happening right now. However, I do not really mean right now, I mean 4 1/2 hours from right now. I am writing this at 2:30 PM EST. I write right now as this will not publish until 6:45 PM EST. Then it only counts if you read it right away, unlikely, unless you happen to catch the rss feed or some such. You’ll actually read it after “right now”.

Having said that …

Time is a funny thing. Rachel and I dated at age 15. She left me as I was not exciting enough. We met up again 15 years later. I can not imagine (and others will testify) how dreary and numb my life would be without her in it. I love her more than anything I have ever loved in my life. So what’s a boy to do? With the help of his brother, he proposes marriage to her.

And that’s what I am doing, right now.

She has no idea. Rachel does not expect me to have the ring for another 3 months. I told her since we are not exchanging presents (di$ney was waaaaay expensive) I would cook her dinner. It’s cooking right now (my right now) in the crock pot. She’s bringing/brought the wine. So I am going in to the kitchen, and placing the ring on an engraved silver plate with two chocolate covered strawberries. After she says Yes, we’ll drink the bottle of ‘96 Dom Perignon I bought.

After she makes all her calls and such, I set up a little engagement party. Just a couple of friends and family. I splurged and go a cake and 2 dozen parties from Konditor Meister. Feel free to stop by after 7:30. Mom’s house.

UPDATE – She said yes!

  1. Makes me miss being a kid at Halloween… bobbing for apples, singing spooky songs, making a costume out of toilet paper, happily counting all the crack I got at the end of the night… Seriously though I think this is outrageous! This little girl is obviously a very selfish trick or treater. She should’ve only taken one bag and left the rest for the others…

  2. this is bull shit… no way twelve rocks=$1000..

    although, with mandatory minimums, the six year old should be out in time to collect social security (‘cuz it will still be there šŸ˜‰ )

  3. Suspended? She should have been given an award for bringin’ in that crack rock. Now her glass-dick-suckin’ moms will be going to jail.

  4. Congratulations to both of you!!! I am so happy for you šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

    I feel like I was an important part of this, since I was with you when you first met Rachel again, at Rick’s Cafe drinking Strawberry blonde Pete’s Wicked Ales.

    Thats when the first, I should saw second, encounter started.
