Question: Do these count as proposals?
This is the first of a series on Steph's wedding. This story take place pretty much towards the end of the evening. There is another story that comes right after it, but I can't blog that because Jaani hasn't yet given me an essential photo.
So, as a few of you know, I've had a few marriage proposals in my time. Unfortunately, they've all been from kids under the age of eight. (Mikey is one of them.) Anyway, Steph had just thrown the bouquet, and I didn't get it. More than that, I didn't even really go for it.
Adam said: "I'm surprised you didn't get the bouquet. I was expecting you to kill to get it."
Me: "Yeah, well, I don't even have a guy."
Adam: "That's because your standards are too high."
Me: "Are not. I only have 5 critera." (tall, Christian, employed or prospects of being so, mature, and MUST WANT CHILDREN)
Adam: "Yeah, that's too many." He pauses, then says, "You could marry me."
Me: "You're not Christian."
Adam: "I'll convert."
Me: "You're too short."
Adam: "I'm your height."
Allan: "You could marry me. I was brought up in a fundamentalist Christian church."
Me: "But you don't actually believe."
To be continued when Jaani emails me a few photos...
